I am looking for William and Jane Mills/Milnes who were living in St Peter's Parish, Birmingham, Warwickshire on the 1841 Census. They had a daughter Margaret who was 1 year old. There is an Elizabeth Waden living at the same address. That same year, they immigrated to the United States. William left Jane sometime after 1860 (and seven children) and disappeared, although Jane seems to have known when he died because she began calling herself a widow in the 1890s. Jane raised those kids alone and lived to the ripe old age of 88, passing away in 1905. William was listed on the 1841 Census as a currier. He was listed in 1850 in Paterson, New Jersey, USA as a "tanner & courier." I would like to find their marriage information as I do not have Jane's maiden name. If anyone has any information on either of these people, please contact me. Thanks.
