    GEORGE WASHINGTON
    George Washington, 1534 tons, 198' x 41' x 29', built 1851 by John A. Taylor at Chelsea, Massachusetts. Square-rigged with 3 decks, square stern, and a billethead owned by William Bramhall and others in the Boston area, she sailed in the Williams & Guion Line, Train's Line, and Warren & thayer's line of Liverpool and Boston Packets. On his return home to England, Charles Dickens preferred this sailing craft rathar than another experience on a British steamer. In 1867, the ship's registration was surrendered with no reason given. In 1857, the George Washington sailed under Captain Josiah S. Comings/Cummings, bringing 817 Mormons from Liverpool to Boston in 23 days. During the period of highest immigration, the Mormon church often chartered an entire ship. Ships, Saints and Mariners by Conway B. Sonne






  • Census, July 7, 1860, Cass, Schuylkill, Pennsylvania. picture
    NOTE: The family in this Census is only suspected to be "our Luke's". The ages of the children are consistant with other information on other documents but the ages of the parents, John and Elizabeth, are either wrong or these are not our Lukes. What we do know is that John entered military service in Pennsylvania and this is the only 1860 census data we have been able to somewhat connect to the family.
