Does anyone have source for the Edwards family (John, Mary, son David J.) immigration in 1870 that I have on record?

+5 votes
My wife is a descendant of David J. Edwards(b 1869), son of John D. and wife Mary Watkins Edwards. Our Family paper logs indicate that David J. Edwards immigrated in 1870. We are assume he did so with parents John and Mary. If anybody has an actual source, e.g., passenger list or other record I would like a copy. Unfortunately we haven't located John David Edwards, nor Mary Watkins, parents yet. We do have one member researching a David Edwards as John D. Edward's father.

Thanks Maureen. I already had the 1880 from FamilySearch. I now also have the 1910 Census for both David J. Edwards (D.J. Edwards at and John David Edwards (at both of which report 1871 as the immigration date. So, we are looking for 1871 passenger lists for the family.
