I've been working on my family geneolagy for almost 2 years with a brick wall hitting me ever turn.(or me hitting a brick wall.)
Sarah Ann Nancarrow born 1834 to William Nancarrow and Elizabeth Towan in Redruth, Cornwall, England.
In 1869 or 1870 she came to America with her husband Joseph Thomas born in 1836.
Also coming was Mary Nancarrow born 1832 Redruth, Cornwall, England.Same parents. Sarah and Joseph's daughter Katie Thomas born 1862. Two brothers of Joseph Thomas names possible John and Charles Thomas.Others may have been with them as well but not sure.
I think they may have entered the United State through San Fransisco.My Great grandfather was born in Nevada in late 1870.
Mary Nancarrow married John Nash in 1872 in Winnemucca, Nevada.
On Aunt Katies death certificate it list Redruth as birth place.
