Hello to the List,
This is my first posting to this list. I am trying to trace a
relative, Thomas George Powell, who left his family in England, on 9
September, 1905 on the "Philadelphia" arriving in New York 16 Sept
1905 to join the "Brown Bros". I presume the 'brown' referred to
the cassocks the order wore.
TGP was born in Surrey, England circa 1859. His occupation was
Coachman/Motor Cab Driver.
Parents names Thomas and Sarah.
As he obviously landed in New York for whatever reason, I decided to
post to this list hoping someone might offer some suggestions for
I would like to discover if there is any truth to the story, i.e.
which order did he join, and to find where and when he died.
