      GRO ref: GOATHAM, John Thomas q2 1880 Milton RD 2a 869; GRO online index shows mother's maiden name as Goodson

      Probably born 2nd May - US naturalisation cert shows his dob as 2 May 1877! I think it was this John Thomas but that he'd gained 3 years.

    • A John Tomas (sic) Goatham is listed in Filby's Passenger and Immigration lists index, arriving in Illinois in 1910.
      A US naturalisation cert shows his dob as 2 May 1877! I think it was this John Thomas but that he'd gained 3 years.
      A WW1 draft registrationadds weight to this. The date is again shown as 2 May 1877, but next of kin as Mrs H Perkins (sister), resident in Old Kent Road.
      Whilst I can't find a sister of John's to fit, his brother and sister-in-law, William Goatham and Louisa, were living in the Old Kent Road at the time of the 1911 census and Louisa's maiden name was Perkins.
