I now know that John Ferry came to the U. S. in 1842 and became citizen in 1847 in Schuylkill, Pa.He met and married Elizabeth Jane Willingham also from England,Yorkshire, and by 1847 were parents of Hannah Ferry.They may have married around 1847 and may have had couple of children before Hannah of which we have no record of.Can only find 9 of their 14 children supposed to be born. My husband's grandfather was one of them. They lived in Schuylkill Pa. for about 10 years before removing to Illinois and the on to Missouri and settled there. John's parents were. Thomas and Elizabeth Smith of Easington, County Durham.Don't have any siblings of John's of which I have been tring to find. If anyone knows of this family, we can exchange info.Thanks.
