Re: When only part of the family emigrates to the US #usa

What do 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930 US census records say about years of arrival for both the husband and the wife? Do those match up with the wife arriving first? And have you found the ship passenger list for the husband?

Another possibility - Where did this husband and wife settle? If it was far enough away from Philadelphia, it may be that the wife and children were met by the wife's sister, simply because the sister lived closest to the port.
