Thomas & Hannah Pask née Parish Immigrated to America

Another relevation just discovered was that Thomas & Hannah Pask née Parish immigrated to America!

Andy included in his documents the image of the US census for 1880:

Census Place: Newark, Essex, New Jersey; Roll: T9_777; Family History Film:
1254777; Page: 462.1000; Enumeration District: 43; Image: 0299.
Thomas was listed as a Shoefitter, living with his wife Hannah, and daughter Ellen.

It is likely that their son Thomas Henry Pask also immigrated in 1893. He sailed on the Scythia, arriving at the port of Boston, Massachusetts. His occupation was a Bootmaker, and his last residence was listed as Northamptonshire.

This seems to confirmed by the fact that we could not find either Thomas, or Thomas Henry and their families in the subsequent UK censuses.
