I am researching the Hackett genealogy for England, particular the Black Country, W. Midlands. My Hacketts were at one time Nailors until the industrial revolution when they started coalmining.
Rague and Emma Twigger Hackett were married in England and came to the USA. Rague came in 1856 alone aboard the Henry Clay arriving in the Port of NY, and going on to Schuylkill Cty, PA and later to Tioga Cty PA.
Emma and her two children Joseph William and Mary came to the USA along with Emma's brother William aboard the Robert Kelly. They also arrived in the Port of NY. Emma and the children went on to Schuylkill Cty to meet Rague there and William went on to Virginia to join his new wife Mary Armstrong Twigger.
William originally came to the USA in 1852 with his brother in law Samuel Westwood. Samuel also settled in Schuylkill where he was a coal miner.
If any one has any link to this I would be very interested in corresponding with you. If you have any further questions please contact me. Darlene
