I am trying to trace a member of my family, my great-great grandfather James Moses (b. 1844) who had a brief stint in the United States around 1870-1.
I know that his eldest son James was born in Wales in 1869, while his second son Moses Moses was born in "Hyde Park, USA" in 1871 (sadly I've yet to figure out which Hyde Park this is), but by 1875 they were all back in Wales for the birth of his third child.
This would put James Moses' arrival in the United States between late 1869 and early 1871. He would have most likely traveled with his son James and his wife (who may have been Rachel, born 1849).
Any help that could be provided in terms of dates, names of ships, fellow travelers (if he did indeed travel with a Rachel Moses it would finally confirm the identity of his first wife which has been a mystery for some time) and whatever else records could offer would be greatly appreciated.
