Greenman Immigrants to The US

Can anyone help piece this together?

I am investigating what is, to me, a new Greenman line which may have immigrated to The US.

Henry Greenman marries Jane Cain 1837 and moves from Box, Wiltshire, England to Halifax, Yorkshire England.They have 10 children. One, Thomas, marries a Mary Throp abt 1876/77. I believe they had three children all born, Bradford, Yorkshire UK.

Beatrice b 1876 (Could have been illegitimate may have used the name Beatrice Throp)
Florence b 1877
Henry b 1880

A Beatrice Greenman Left Bradford and departed from Liverpool on on The Cedric arriving in the USA on 8.5.1921. As she passed through Ellis Island the assumption has to be that she emigrated. She gave her age as 40 on arrival which would make her birth 1881 as opposed to our d.o.b. She
was described as married.

On the same ship were the following all from Bradford so it all looks to be a family ie husband Hurley Greenman aged 37 and Louis Greenman aged 11 (odd he takes mother's name)

A Florence Greenman also sailed from Liverpool on The Philadelphia arriving at Ellis Island 16.5.1918. She was aged 40 and single. Beatrice had step sister Florence born about 1877 which is close enough.

A Dorothy Greenman sailed from Liverpool on The Lusitania arriving at Ellis Island 23.12.1914. Aged 22 and single on arrival. She is just about young enough to be the daughter of either Beatrice or Florence!! Could the earlier emigrants have reported back favourably?

Many thanks
