Looking for Daniel Diggle, PA and England 1800s
Hi, I am new to this forum and seeeking information on my 3 great grandfather - Daniel Diggle who arrived in Philadelphia about 1854 from England on the boat City of Manchester.(infor from boat record)and PA census and Phila City Directories.He was married to Rachel Byrd either once he arrived in PA or before he left England. They had one son William Edward - born in PA.
Daniel was a dye-man in one of the textile shops in Phila.
I believe that he came from the Manchester area -
Daniel Diggle - b. abt 1819 - d. abt 1879
Rachel Byrd - d. between 1864-1870
Their son - William Edward - b. 7 july 1864 Phila d. 4 march 1944, Charlotte, NC
Daniel remarried - and they had a daughter Rachel. When he died his widow and Rachel moved to Augusta, Ga to be with Daniel's son, William Edward.
William Edward married Katherine Louisa Frickey of Augusta GA.
Their oldest son Samuel Lewis Diggle, Sr. was born April 4 1887 Augusta, GA - died 3 March 1951
I have other information on the latter generations and will gladly share. Hope someone can help with information on Daniel or Rachel Byrd. Thanks, Ellouise Diggle Schoettler
