Richard had a brother William Harry Sedgwick, christened the same date as he, June 21, 1893 Sneinton, Nottingham. When Richard and Gertrude immigrated, brother William was already here. It seems possible that the William Sedgwick in the 1920 census Brooklyn ED 641, 451 Prospect Place, may be this brother. From records I have seen at Ancestry.com, it appears that William Harry Sedgwick was born May 12, 1882 in Nottingham, England, and died February 8, 1972 at Saint Petersburg, Pinellas, Florida.
