Greenwood was christened on the 3rd November 1881 in Habergham Eaves (VRI).
Greenwood married Ellen Maud Hollinrake (EM187) (b.7 Apr 1885, d.27 Sep 1964) on the 7th Nov 1907 in Burnley (RoM Burnley 1907 Q4 Vol.8e p.546) and they had two children, both who appear to have been born in the USA:
- DM054 James Greenwood (b.4th Dec 1916, d.5th Dec 1993)
- DM053 Grace Alice (b.c.1921).
The Ellis Island web site has records of immigration. These records show that Ellen, James and Grace arrived in New York on board the Berengaria on 10th October 1924 from Southampton in the UK. Presumably they had been “back home” to visit relatives but Greenwood had stayed in their home in San Francisco. The manifest also shows that they had been living in the US since about 1911 but I have yet to find immigration records to show this.
Greenwood died on 21st Oct 1934.
James Greenwood was a Physician in Long Beach, Southern California and had two sons James Greenwood Magnall (Jnr) and Geoffrey who live in Southern California.
