John Elliston b1885 England lived in Allegheny Co 1920-1940 (at least)

John Elliston Snr was born in Suffolk in 1852. He married Sarah Ann Machen (distant relation of mine) in 1881 in Sheffield. They had Annie Elizabeth b 1883 and John b 1885. In August 1890 Sarah and the children left Liverpool for New York. John Snr remained in Sheffield and died there in 1907. Via "familysearch" I have found John Jnr (all the supporting info fits) living in Allegheny Co (Mount Lebanonon township) with wife Pearl (1920) and wife Catherine (or Katherine) and daughter Elizabeth (1930 and 1940), plus a WW2 draft card for 1942. I have tried "findagrave" for Allegheny Co with no success (although I have a closer relative buried in Mt Lebanon cemetery). Does anyone have any further info on the family? I note the name still exists in the area from a Google search.
