I have details of my gt grandmother emigrating from Darlaston via Liverpool  to PA in 1870 with a 3yr old and babe in arms. She had 2 children out there so I know her hubby (William Edwards) went too.

My question is why? what led them to take that massive decision?  did other families go?

I'm guessing it was to do with mining but does anyone know anything more.
