I am trying to find George E attwood who was in South Africa in the 1880's and immigrated to the USA after the death of his wife in Approx 1896. He would be traveling with very small children named, George A, Edith, Rose Maude, and Gladys. Thanks for any help you can provide. He was in San Francisco, CA USA by 1900.

Please see the other response to my question for all the details I have, the birthdate I have from the census is Sep 1855. Immigration 1892, would like to see the record for the arrival to see if Ellen (new wife) was with them.
Looks like Ellen had a maiden name of Wilton.
Thanks for the replies!
