I am trying to trace the first wife of William JS Dampier b 1857 Saltash, Cornwall England died 1940 New Castle, Lawrence,Pennsylvania.
William immigrated in 1880 but I am not sure if he married before or after. He was a widower by 1900
William had 4 daughters by his first wife:
Sarah b 1884, Mary J b1886, Jennie b 1888, Esther b 1889 all born Pennsylvania
In 1900 Mary J and Sarah are with their father William but no sign of Esther or Jennie.
Jennie married 1. Mr Griffith 2.William Pugh and between 1930 and 1873 lived in Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania.
Esther married Jacob W Glahn and lived in Forty Fort Pennsylvania until her death in 1953.
Sarah married Carl Boughton and lived in New Castle,Lawrence
Mary J married James Love and lived in New Castle,Lawrence.
In 1891 William married Emily Dominey and had a son William C in 1892.
I would like to know who William's first wife was and where the 4 girls were before 1900.
