My information (from a letter sent to England in 1975 by agrandson of Robert Blaine Boustead in Cottage Grove, Oregon) is that John and Isabella (Blaine) Boustead went to America in the fall of 1868 landing at New York Harbour October 14 of that year. At that date they had produced 7 children: -
Thomas born 4/10/1837 Orton, Cumberland Isabella born 20/7/1840 Orton, Cumberland Catherine born 17/10/1842 at Newcastle upon Tyne Edward born 22/10/1844 Newcastle upon Tyne John H Lborn17/2/1847 Newcastle upon Tyne Robert Blaine born 25/10/1852 Newcastle upon Tyne Elizabeth born 1858 and died in infancy
Does anyone have the date and/or place of birth of this John Boustead please as I am trying to link him to my wife's relative John Boustead who emmigrated to USA in 1864? There were a number of John Bousteads of that line in England whose line I have not yet established.
