Charlotte, here is the information that I have on my fraternal line. My grandfather is most likely the brother of your husband's great-grandmother. Although I have made some progress in researching his wife's ancestry, I have been unable to find anything beyond his generation. Would appreciate any additional info you have on our English ancestry:

b England 12/25/1880
(son of Mr. and Mrs. ARTHUR CHITTOCK)
d 12/10/1933
m ~ 1902 to NELLIE McDONALD,
b 6/28/1884, d 193?

Florence M. Chittock was my father's sister known as Flory. Your information is correct as to parents, marriage and birth dates. Florence and Tom are burried at the Niles Memorial Cementary, Niles, OH. Florence had sisters Sade, and Jane - brothers, Fred, Ed [who died at age 2 or 3 of a broken heart, Arthur, and my father, Frank Lawrence Chittock. I believe they had two children, a son and daughter.

My father Fred (I am his daughter by his second marriage) was your first cousin. I am interested in any details that you have on his father or grandfather's generations. According to the 1881 British Census and news clippings, what I have is:

father: Arthur Chittock, age 26, born Stonham Aspall, England; labourer at ironworks
mother: Mary Ann, age 22, born Winston, Suffolk, England
daughter: Florence Naomi, age 2

Fred Sr. b 12/25/1880 England - d 12/10/33
Arthur b ?8/9/1888 - d ?5/65 Ohio
Frank b ?8/16/93 - ? d 2/74
Sadie b ? - d ?, married name Rummell
I have no information on Ed or Jane. I do remember going with my father to visit an "Aunt Jane" somewhere around Pittsburgh. However, there was no mention of a sister Jane in Fred Sr.'s obituary.

Can you fill in any of the dates/places above? Any idea when Arthur and Mary Ann migrated to the U.S. or which port they entered through? Any information would be appreciated.

I also found a birth record for an Arthur Chittock, born 4/14/1854 in Stonham Aspall, Suffolk; parents Robert and Sarah Chittock. This fits with Arthur's 1881 census information. Might you have any data on previous generations?
