My Betsy Rockett was born in 1818, Huish Champflower, England.
20 July 1848 she left England for New York with husband George TOWILS and son John age 5 aboard the Robert Peel.
She is listed on the ship as Elizabeth Towils. This is the only time I
have seen her listed as Elizabeth. She has been Betsy or Betsey.
She was Baptized Betsy Rockett.
The name above hers on the ship's list is Philip Wyatt, a butcher.
1850 census of Albion has her as wife to Philip Wyatt. I am assuming George Towils died between 1848 and 1850.
I need help in finding a death for a George TOWILS and a marriage for
Betsy to Philip WYATT and am beginning my search in Albion since this is the first record I have of them after arriving in the US.
John is the son of George Towils and Betsy and was born in England.
1860 census the family is in Terre Haute Indiana, where Betsy Wyatt died in 1877.
Betsy and Philip had 5 children with them in 1860:
Were any of the last 4 born in Orleans County is my question.
Any help will be appreciated in my finding my family records.

My ggrandmother, Sarah Rockett Langdon and Betsy's father Edward were siblings.
