      =======================================================================================
      Appears that Mary and sons James & John travelled to USA arriving in New York in 1859.
      This is not 100% certain but would explain why there was no evidence of the family in UK after husband John died in 1855.
      Older brother William has not been found on a passenger list but has been assumed to be the father of the Illinois Houliston family born in the 1870's.
