I'm trying to locate the family of my great uncle, John Owen Eames, who was born in Derby, England, in 1879 to Welsh parents Edward and Anne (nee Owen) Eames. John migrated to the USA in the early 1900s and is listed on the 1910 census at Snake River in Carbon County, Wyoming. By 1920 he was living in Rawlins, Wyoming and had married Adeline (surname unknown). They had a daughter, Elva, born about 1919 and there may well have been other children.
Four of John's (or Jack as he was known) sisters migrated to Australia, the second youngest, Dorah, was my grandmother. One brother, Edward, went to South Africa.
