this may be a forlorn hope but!
Has anyone a family history or family story that may include a Frank Codington (Coddington) Who may have arrived in the USA not long after 1882.
Frank was a bookkeeper by profession and a well educated man for the time.
He was born in 1860 in Sheffield, England and his father was William Codington his mother Ann
He was on the run from England but was still using his real name when he wrote to my gggranmother when he was in the USA
Does this sound like anyone in your Family if so I would like to hear from you
Thanks in advance
