Re: Puffitt Family from Oxford England
I have found additional info on my U.S. Puffett family. In the 1885 State census for Iowa it shows James (41), Ann (41), Joseph (21) and Sarah J. (7). Sarah Jane is my ancestor mentioned in a previous post. She immigrated with her mother Anne and sister (presumably) Anne in 1881 from Liverpool. So I now have a family group consisting of Parents James (b. abt 1844) and Anne (b. abt 1840-44) and children Joseph (b. abt 1864), Anne (b. abt 1870), and Sarah Jane (b. Sep 1877). All five were born in England. As I said before, Sarah Jane later gave her birthplace as "Single Lanc" or "Lingle Lanc". There is a Singleton in Lancashire. Do any of you know of James Puffett born about 1844 (may be off by several years).
