Passenger lists - William Tom Newman

I am trying to find an emigration of William Tom Newman (born 1854) in Gillingham Dorset. He married Alice Pierson and had 2 children, George and Adelaide. I cannot find him after 1861, and I know at some point he moved to St.Louis in America.

I am trying to find his passage to America, and which boat, etc , he went over on. Any help greatly appreciated

Are your years accurate?

If he was born in 1854 and you last found him in 1861, he would have been 7 years old. Is this correct?

Where did you get the information on his wife and children?

If you can narrow down the "at some point" emigration, it might help someone find the records for you.

Good luck!

Hi thanks for the reply. I thought at first he was gone by 1871 (max age 17). But I think I have found him in later census, so possibly between 1890 - 1910. I know his wife and children through another family member, they are just unsure how he came from the UK to St.Louis
