Thank you for all of the information. Where did you find the marriage license?
We have been all over the genealogy web sites. This is the first time I have seen any reference
to Joseph's parents. Could Simon be an English version of something else? We have different
immigration dates on some records which now makes me question how old he was when he came over.
We have been trying to link him to the other Amalavages in the Coledale area but so far no luck.
I know the Mt. Carmel area is correct because I have other information on one of Susan's sisters.
My Aunt Margret was born there on March 15th 1894. The last of 13 children. From what I know her
Father Charles was killed in a mine not long after. From what I gather birth records are not easily
found in that area. Other that Susan the only other sibling name I have is Constance who married at 14
and was killed by her husband at age 26.
