I am researching the Read and Broadhurst lines that emigrated from the silk manufacturing town of Macclesfield, England, in the late 1800s. By 1897, 15,000 people from this one town emigrated to Paterson, New Jersey, to find jobs in the then-flourishing silk mills. Sarah Ann Marsden Read was closely aligned with a Robert and James Barr in those early years in Paterson.William Henry READm. Sarah Ann MARSDENSon: William Marsden Read (came to USA in 1886) b.
