Re: Rylands, John in Chicago

Hi - I had to pull out some old files. It is giving me the itch to do some further research. Anyway, my grandfather was John Joseph Rylands. He was born in Liverpool on May 4, 1889. His father was John Stephen Rylands born on December 26, 1855. I was told he came to the US in 1893. However, the Ellis Island records list 4 John Rylands with the 1st arriving in 1896. So am not sure about that. According to my info, his father was a Thomas Rylands born in 1829 and died in 1864. His father was a John Rylands born in 1798/99 and died in 1861.

This is probably not much help but I am going to do some more research. My dad has been doing some but he is 82 and doesn't have access to the web.

Let me know, Don
