DRURY, Thomas of Treeton Parish, Yorkshire, England & Minnesota, United States

Journal by icjaynerun

Thomas DRURY was born 1794-96 near Sheffield, Yorkshire and married Sarah WALKER b abt 1798; they married 1 Oct 1821 at Treeton Parish, Yorkshire with a John & Hannah WALKER as witnesses. I do not have parents for either Thomas or Sarah. After birth of last son Joseph in 1840 (all children were christened at St.John's, Wales, Yorkshire). Their oldest child I have record of (1841 census)shows George b 1830, Emma b 1832, Charles b 1833, William b 1835, Alfred b 1838 and the last Joseph b 1840. Since they were married in 1821, I know there are other children, just at a loss of where to look. Perhaps he just wasn't at home for a few years. Thomas, Sarah & family ended up in Wisconsin, United States by 1850, then 5 years later in Minnesota and both Thomas & Sarah died there in their 80's. I now know that the entire family came through New York port in Sep of 1849 (exact date not at my fingertips). With them was the son of Thomas's brother William, Joseph b abt 1830. This Joseph stayed in Wisconsin and raised a family with hi wife Margaret Peggy EDWARDS. Thomas had 2 brothers that we know of (1841 Census), John and William. Never could find a brother Joseph in Wisconsin, that supposedly Thomas went to join. Think the family story got twisted.
