Morris ["Makers of New York", 1895] contains a biography of her son, Deacon Samuel Whitmee, which says in part:- "The father of Samuel, the third Thomas Whitmee in succession ... returned to his native town, remaining there until 1849, when he disposed of all his property in England, and emigrated with his family to America. He sailed from Liverpool on the ship 'St Patrick,' making the passage to New York City in four weeks and four days".
The passenger lists for the "St Patrick", a 3-masted barque built in Canada, for 1849 do not include any Whitmees. But one which arrived in New York 24 May 1849 refers to a Whitman family which appears to be them:-
|Name||Age||Occupation||Country of Origin||Intend to become inhabitant|
'Seley' is presumably Samuel Whitmee; the younger 'Eliza', his wife; the elder 'Eliza', Elizabeth; and 'Jas', Jabez. 'Anna' is probably Hannah, although the age given is incorrect. 'Susana' is of the right age to be Joseph, Samuel and Eliza's eldest son; Henry is their second child. The absence of any entry for Thomas Whitmee himself is curious.
