Note on Wife: Annie SHARLAND - shared note

In 1881 Annie is aged 6 yrs living in the family home in Cruwys Morchard


In 1887 she travelled to the United States where her brother George was already resident. This is the information revealed on the 1900-1930 US Federal census although not found her on a ships passenger list yet.


Her where abouts is unknown around 1890 because very few of the census returns survived the fire of January 1921 at the Commerce Buildings in Washington but information extracted from a local list of marriages by the LDS reveals

on 14th November 1894 at Webster, Washtenaw county Annie married Clifton B Green.


The 1900 census shows Annie with her husband and baby son living in the household of her in-laws in Dexter, Washtenaw. The census shows Annie as English born and being resident in the USA for 13 years. I t was undertaken on the 18th June.
