Emma sailed to America in 1850 on the ship Hartley. A family history states that Thomas came to America in 1849 and earned his way by working on a ship. If this is true, it is likely the reason his name does not appear on any ship manifest.
Emma's birth and death dates are confirmed by the inscription on her gravestone.
