The migrations of Nancy and William

Both William and Nancy Ann were born in Co Tyrone, Northern Ireland.
At some stage they moved to Scotland, where William was in the police force, and the first 6 of their children (Hugh, Eliza, James, Anne, William, and Sarah (who also died there)) were born in Glasgow.
In April 1878 the family emigrated to the USA. They arrived in the port of New York on the 25th, on the SS Victoria.
Initially the family settled in Magnolia, Ohio, with Nancy Ann's Uncle, William Harkness Greer
The Wilson family then moved with Nancy Ann's father John Greer, to Hamilton Co, Nebraska. They were present there for the 1880 census. The last 3 children, Mary, Ida and Clarence Clyde were born in Nebraska.
About 1888 the Wilson family moved to Washington Co, Colorado.
About 1917 Nancy and William moved to Round Lake, New York. Where they lived with thier daughter Mary and her husband Frank Bloom. They lived here until they died in 1920 (Nancy) and 1924 (William)
