Dear Ann

I don't know whether or not you are still researching family history as I notice your message was posted in 2001. However, I am looking for William Greaves (1866)and his details seem to fit the William Greaves on your list who sailed into Boston on the SS Iowa on 29th July 1886. Do you have any information on how I can verify this information?

Love to hear from you

Christine
