    Seeking information about Hansbrough family in DC

    Bonny Cassidy Newbie

      In 1909, John Harrison Hansbrough sailed from Melbourne to New York on the ship St Paul. He recorded in passenger records that he was visiting a relative in Washington DC. My own family's archives confirm he had relatives there. John was an African American man, born a slave in Virginia, who became a naturalized Australian citizen. He was 48 at the time he sailed back to the States and visited DC.

       

      I would like to find any leads at all to African American Hansbrough family/ies connected to Washington, DC - in particular, families or individuals who were living there between 1880-1910. These are the dates when John may have spent time there.
