William BETHEL (my gr gf), was born 1/4/1869 or 70 in Wales (site unknown). He emigrated from Wales to the US in 1892 (specifically, Plymouth, Luzerne County, PA) to work as a stable boss. His naturalization papers indicate that he arrived in New York on May 1, 1892. I am looking for anyone who might have info concerning his siblings or ancestors. I have a great deal of info on his decendants.
I have looked for him in the 1881 census but couldn't find him. I have already contacted Dr. David Bethel and he couldn't find my great grandfather, either. I have searched rootsweb.freebmd.com but again didn't find him. I was thinking that maybe the birth year is wrong or maybe even his name.
His children (7) were named Marian, William, Edith, Edna, Reese, Walter George, and Louis. The only names used by his wife's family were William and Walter. Therefore maybe the other names are from his family.
If anyone knows of a male born on January 4th within 5 years of 1870 that could have moved from Wales to the US please advise me.
Thanks for reading this and thanks for any replies.
