COTTIER - Isle of Man > Australia > USA

Journal by kelmark

I am researching a branch of the COTTIER/SMITH family that moved to the US in the 1860s/1870s.

Emily Margaret Smith married William Talbot Cottier in 09 Jan 1864 in Queensland, Australia.

They sailed for the USA abt 1867 (daughter Mary b at sea).

By the 1880s, they arrived in California and settled in Oakland.

The family name is Cottier, I have found a few references online in some newspaper accounts. William Snr and Emily (nee Smith) divorced in 1894. I imagine this was not hugely common in those days? Do records exist? I have seen a record in the Oakland Tribune, dated May 03, 1897.
