Herbert CUMPSTONE to Connecticut USA

ON 4th April I received a message from  aalstone@hotmail.com saying:

‘My Great grandfather re-located from  a coal district in England to Connecticut, USA. He lived well into his 90’s. Had 5 sons, Robert, a pilot who was shot down in WWII, Francis, my Grandfather, Gordon, Melbourne, and Fred. Melbourne was the last to die 1-2 years ago. My father, Donald lives in Ct aged 80 and married to Effie Edith Siegfried. They have 6 children, myself, Anne, older brother John David, Peter Scott, William Mark, Jane Zamichieli and Jennifer.

I am pretty certain that my Great grandfather had added the E to -ston when he immigrated to the USA. His wife was from Wales.’

I wonder if this is Herbert – Percy Herbert Cumpstone http://www.cumpston.org.uk/#/francis-cumpstone-pg-2/4536285953

Records for him include:

Herbert Campstone (Cumpstone) Spouse Lilly Home in 1920 New Haven Ward 9 New Haven Connecticut born c. 1883 England.

The only UK registration is for Percy Herbert Cumpstone b. 1878 in Shropshire Staffs England. 

There is an American death entry for Herbert Cumpston birth date 13 Jul 1881, death date June 1972 at Hamden New Haven Connecticut. There is also an entry for him in the  World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 FHL Roll number 1561925

There is an entry for Herbert birth date 13 July 1881 in Shropshire in the US WW11 draft registration cards 1942.  There is also an Incoming Passenger list entry on 12 April 1954 for Herbert aged 73 from New York, arriving in Southampton on the ship Queen Elizabeth.
