      There are lots of gaps but according to my father there were Atherton relatives in Ottawa, Canada. Perhaps by the time my father was born in 1909 the marriage was not happy.
      Amos also had his own joinery/building business in Bolton - advert in Bolton Directory 1899 photo attached. It went into liquidation by 1907.
