My great grandfather Walter Rushworth, born in Bradford in 1877, emigrated to the US in 1907 and became a US citizen in 1921. But I have already traced back with certainty to his grandfather William, born and baptised in Huddersfield in 1814. He had, apparently, 3 children with wife Elizabeth. After her death he married the widow Caroline Shaplin in 1853, by which time he lived in Bradford. William’s parents are listed as Thomas and Elizabeth, and it is this Thomas who is stumping me.
