My gt grandfather was Joseph Gettings born Ilkestone, Derbyshire in 1874. In 1903 he left his wife and daughters and sailed to the US to stay with his aunt a Mrs Whitehouse in East Mckeesport. His mother was Lydia Whitehouse married to Richard Gettings and they lived in the UK but I can't find out who the aunt was. Lydia had brothers and sisters but it is difficult to trace their lives as their names are so common. I have lost track of Joseph after the 1930 US census and would really like to know more about him and the Whitehouse relatives that he stayed with.
