James Weston Scranton Lace Factory
Posted by: Mary Antill (ID *****1996) Date: February 12, 2009 at 08:42:14

James Weston (1857 - 1938) and his wife Eliza Case (b 1858) emigrated from Nottingham, England via Liverpool and Ellis Island eventually to Scranton. James, I understand, was an engineer who was instrumental in setting up machinery for the Scranton Lace factory. He had five children born in the 1870s/1880s: Arthur, Samuel, Florence, Lily and Ethel. Are there any descendents still in Pennsylvania? I now have some details about Lily who married Lelsie Sherwood Marsh, but would love to hear if there is anyone else descended from James. James did become a naturalized citizen of America. My maiden name is Weston, and James was an uncle to my paternal grandfather.
