I recently found my Benjamin and Emma (Reynolds) Tonks in the 1881 British census with their young daughters Betsy and Caroline, living in Staffordshire's Sedgley Parish. The surprise is that Benjamin and Emma are shown to have been born in Dawley, Shropshire.
Ben's age of 40 places his birth circa 1841. Emma's age of 47 places her birth circa 1834. Ben's occupation was coal miner.
Ben's 1922 Leechburg, Pennsylvania death certificate identifies him as J. Benjamin Tonks and his parents as Joseph and Mary (maiden name illegible, but beginning with B) Tonks.
