To Jack Hayes & others- Have found info on all but William and Thomas. I am also interested in finding cousins of this family,both in U.S. and elsewhere. I have a lot of info to share regarding those who came to U.S., including other descendants. Father: John Wellington,b.est.1819;census says Chatham,Kent,England Mother: Ann(a) Tonkin,b.est.1822,Gwinear,Redruth, Cornwall,England Children: Elizabeth,b.19 Nov 1843;Gwinear,Redruth,England John,b.5 Sept 1845,Gwinear,Cornwall Thomas,b.est.1848 William,b.est.1850 Henry,b.4 July 1853,Pool,Illogan,Redruth,Cornwall
They were both copper miners when in England. Looking for anyone who might have a Thomas or William Wellington in their ancestral records.
I am also looking for the death record of the father, John Wellington. He went to Cuba to work, according to 1861 census(under Ann Willington)Illogan. By 1871 she was a widow. So he died between these times. The closest death record I have for the area is 1857, I believe.
I appreciate the work that anyone can do to help. Lynelle
