My relative Frank/Francis Taylor b.1839/40 was on USA 1880 census in Cambria, he was a Wiredrawer who had travelled from Birmingham UK to work in Johnstown.
His family joined him between 1880 USA census and 1881 UK census.
They were back in Birmingham by 1891 census his wife living with a John Hughes with her 2 children Frank 14 and Joe 11.
It is believed that Frank/Francis Taylor may have died in the 1889 disaster.
I have found a Frances Taylor but no other record ,burial Yoden Catholic cemetery.
I have searched the Morgue records to see who identified the body but I cannot find the name.
I was wondering if Francis had been mistranscribed as Frances on records and if anyone could give me any more information.
Thank you for reading this post.
