Amy:

1st off, do you live in Illinois or elsewhere?


As I mentioned, my great grandfather, Thomas William Unthank was born March 26, 1874 in Garforth, Yorkshire, England. I have verified this via the following 1881 British Census and it would appear that your Issac is my g-grandfathers Uncle.

Thomas immigrated to the US in 1886 at the age of 11 ( I don't know if he traveled alone or with anyone, I am still looking for an immigration record).

Thomas's father, Abraham Unthank (born July 23, 1853) died in Springfield, Illinois on May 10, 1933. I am still looking for an immigration record on him.

There is a public member tree on Ancestry.com called "Unthank Family Tree" that lists Sara's father as a William Hewitt (1795 - ) and Abraham's parents as Jonathan Unthank (1780 - ) and Elizabeth Robinson (1787 - ). The 1851 census has a son William born about 1844 so it looks like Abraham and Sara were married by at least 1844.


I have the following on Isaac.
Issac was born 02 Jul 1862 in England and died 18 Nov 1931 at Eldorado, Saline, Illinois, USA.

Issac Unthank married a Anna Marie Starkey 23 Aug 1886 at La Salle, Illinois, their son John married a Bessie Reeder 01 Nov 1927 at Texas City, IL. and their son Don married Shirley Butler.
