Dear Jay,

This is a direct hit.
Hester/Esther born 1805 is the younger sister of my 3xg grandfather Thomas. Their father was James Milham of Ewhurst.
His brother John Edmonstone Milham b. 1763 in Ewhurst, had a son David b.1795 who was in the Royal Navy and jumped ship in 1817 in New York. Thus, David was Hester's first cousin.
David Milham married several times in the US. His first wife died in 1830 when they were in Ohio.
He himself died in 1875 in Pontiac, Livingston Co., Illinois.
I have been in contact with Charles W.Milham a direct descendant who lives in Washington State.
I had Hester's marriage in 1824 to John Parks but had no idea they went to the US.
One wonders if they ever met up in the US as Hester went there 10 years after David.
I would like to learn more about Hester and would like to exchange information with you if possible.

Regards,
Don
