I recently learned that English immigrants Benjamin Tonks (1848-1922) and wife Emma (1833-1903) are related to my Reynolds line. Benjamin and Emma were in Pennsylvania before 1889 and had daughters Lizzie and Kate who married Thompson brothers. Benjamin and Emma are buried in Leechburg's Evergeen Cemetery.

A Will Tonks is also mentioned in my family history, but his relationship to Benjamin and Emma is unknown.

I need to establish how Benjamin and Emma are related to my gg grandparents, Thomas and Hannah (Wilkes) Reynolds, who are also buried in Leechburg's Evergreen Cemetery. Thomas and Hannah Reynolds were from the Sedgley area of Staffordshire, near Birmingham.

Any information on Benjamin and Emma Tonks or suggestions for finding their specific death dates will be most appreciated.
