[TSL] Devon England to USA 1874
Frances Farmer via <> on 05/07/2015

Hello Everyone,

I am searching for details of the journey of John Charles Diggins (also known as John Diggins, JC Diggins) from England to North America. He was a watchmaker/jeweller by trade.

    Born 5 Sep 1847 Ashton Devon England

    Died 14 Jan 1887 Alpena Michigan

Information from obituary: 

“came to America in 1874 and settled in Wakeman Ohio”

“shortly afterwards came to Strathroy Ontario”

    Married there in 1876 to Margaret McTaggart

“an elder brother was a wealthy lumber merchant in Texas” (possibly William Diggins or Thomas Diggins)

Any information about his journey to North America would be most appreciated.
