I'm searching for distance North relatives from England. Ernest, John and George North were Brothers born to George North and Sarah(?). George North married Mary Ann Broad. They came to America in the late 1800's. 3 Children were born in England (Chatem-Kent)prior to there departure to the U.S. I have made serveral contacts on the Broad side but no luck on the North's - Can anyone Help! George and Mary Ann are at Rest in the McDonoghville Cemetery in Gretna, Louisiana. George North 1845-1918.

Hi Pamela
I have just started my search on the North family. I have a George C North m Emma living in Middlesex, England in 1881 aged 24 and 25. One son Ernest C North ages 1 month.

I also have a letter from Canada froma Herbert North with brothers Arthur and Kennard.

Does any of this fit in with your research?

My George North was born in 1845, in England. (Unknown city). He married Mary Ann Broad. The Broad's were in Hoo, Kent, England and I guess that George and Mary Ann met there. Their oldest child Benjamin George North was born in Chatam-Kent England (1871). Their youngest, Samuel Broad North my Great Grandfather, was born in Mississippi, USA (1884). I have several relatives on the Broad side that I am working with and have been able to obtain a great deal of history on the Broads. My Norths, George and his brother's John and Ernest and possibly a sister have been elusive. I am awaiting the birth certificate from England through one of my Broad relatives. Hopefully, I will get more information then. Are your North's located in Louisiana? If so, maybe I can help you with local research. Let me know...Pam

Additional Notes of Benjamin George North:

I, Benjamin George North was born in ChatamKent, England in the year of our Lord 1871,on
December 3rd. My parents left England to come to Ameica about June 1873. We sailed from
Liverpool aboard a Harrison Line Steamship named the Statesman bound for New Orleans. On our
arrival at New Orleans (the voyage took 3 weeks) we boarded a Morgan, La. And Texas RR train
for Morgan City , La. or Brashier City as it was once named. It was changed to Morgan City in
honor of Mr. Charles Morgan the promoter of the Morgan La. and Texas Railroad and Steamship
Company. I think the original name of the road was the La. and Western. They used a transfer
boat for quite a wile to cross Berwick Bay called the Lucreita and abandoned the boat on
completion of the bridge across Berwick Bay which took place in 1882. The M.L. and T. also
operated a line of ships between Morgan City and Gulf Ports. They were known as the Old Red
Ships. They were walking beams type except two which were screw driven. These were named
the Arkansas and the Morgan City and were painted black. The sidewheelers were painted red and
their names, as far as I can remember, the Harline, the Clinton, the Gussie, the Whitney, the St.
Mary, the Hughes and the Morgan.

We remained in Morgan City until may 1878, when my parents decided to pay a visit to their
parents in England. We left new Orleans aboard a Harrison liner for Liverpool intending to be
gone only for six months. The yellow fever epidemic broke out in New Orleans before we arrived
in England and it caused us to remain in England more than three years. During that time I went to
school at the public school about 1 ½ miles from my home. We walked both ways (we had no
vans or busses in those days to carry us to and from school.). As my father was not afraid of the
yellow fever or any disease in fact and he liked the states when the six months was up he left
England to return back to the U.S.A. leaving my mother, I and my brother Charley and my sister
Beatrice to follow later. Beatrice was then an infant. We left England some time in 1881. I think
it was about May. We left Liverpool on an Inman Liner named the Nova Scotian. The ship called
at Queen Town, Ireland, St. John’s N.B. Halafax N.S. and the ship went to Baltimore, Maryland
where we left the ship and boarded a Baltimore and Ohio train for Chicago. From there we
boarded an Illinois Central train for new Orleans (almost a week was consumed in this trip).

At New Orleans, we were met by my father who took us to Morgan City over the Morgan La. and
Texas RR. (Original transcription of a letter that was type written by Benjamin George North; date
written, unknown) (Source: (1) Benjamin George North)
