Her husband died in 1885, and she Immigrated to USA May 1, 1885 aboard the Inman Line's "City of Rome" from Liverpool to New York. Passengers were Alice Lukes 42, Alice 15, Keturah 7, and Rosina 4.

Six children according to 1900 USA Census: Amelia, Ellen, Alice, Keturah, Rose, and Robert, so perhaps that is only living children -- meaning John Lukes died before 1900.
