I'm trying to find more details about my GGGrandfather and his wife. He was Benjamin Dilworth, Born Belfast 18-5-1815, Died 31-1-1892 in
North Carolina USA.

Before he left for the USA, he had at least one son William George Dilworth who was born 1851, married a Emily Pack, they had 7 sons and 5 daughters, and he died 1899 in a hackney carriage accident in London's. Covent Garden. (No dates for Emily Pack)

My Grandfather was another! Benjamin Dilworth, one of the above 7 sons. There is a whole lot of Benjamin's story, that I do not know, between the dates of 1815 and 1892. I'd like to know about him and his Family.

If anyone needs a helping Yorkshire hand and it is with my power, please let me know: Paul
