  • Notes 
    • Caroline Elizabeth was the eldest daughter and in 1875 she married George Brown in Macclesfield. Four years later they emigrated to America and settled in Pennsylvania. Her younger sister Amelia was a frequent visitor - the June 1880 Census shows her, aged 9, staying with Caroline Elizabeth and George.

      George died in 1891 and about a year later Caroline Elizabeth married Albert Perks, another Brit who had emigrated from Willenhall in Staffordshire. They had three children and both lived to a ripe old age.

      By British standards Caroline Elizabeth was quite well-to-do and would visit Eliza and family in Macclesfield and could never understand why they still had an outside privy! She looked after Amelia when Maria died.
