Branch Family from Cornwall to CT/PA

In 1863 some members of a Branch family in Cornwall migrated to the USA on the Francis P Sage. They were John Branch (48), Edward George (21), Eliza (18) and Thomas (16). John must have returned to Cornwall as he appears there in the 1871.
census with the rest of his family. What happened to Edward George and Eliza is not known,but Thomas lived in Connecticut and Pennsylvania. In the 1870 census he was in Plymouth, Luzerne PA, in 1880 Kent, Litchfield CT, 1886 New London CT, 1900 Cook, Cumberland PA, and presunably died by 1910.
By 1880 two half brothers of Thomas - WSilliam and Isaiah had arrived in the USA. I think William married in Mew York (Martha Werry) and later lived in Wilkes Barre, Luzerne PA with his family - sons William, Thomas, Joseph & Arthur.
Thomas married Mary (Dillon?) and had 2 sons - Thomas (1880) and Arthur Marcus (1881). I believe that Arthur married Sadie Woodward and had a son Thomas Woodward (1927-1999).

I would like to make contact with anybody who either knows about these families or is descended from them.
My information has mostly been taken from Ancestry as well as a letter from Thomas Branch to my great grandfather in Australia in 1886.
