I think you can eliminate James and Eliza Hill who are to be found in Massachusetts in the 1920 US Census.

This is the family in 1911:
Name Relation to Head Birth Date Age Gender Marital Status Occupation Birth Place Address
James William Hill Head 1877 34 Male Married Assistant Cotton Mule Overlooker Dukinfield, Cheshire, England 2 Atlas Street Dukinfield Cheshire
Eliza Ann Hill Wife 1874 37 Female Married Stalybridge, Cheshire, England 2 Atlas Street Dukinfield Cheshire
Jessie Hill Daughter 1906 5 Female Dukinfield, Cheshire, England 2 Atlas Street Dukinfield Cheshire
Rowland Hill Son 1908 3 Male Dukinfield, Cheshire, England 2 Atlas Street Dukinfield Cheshire

Their marriage:
Marriages Mar 1904
Cook Eliza Ann Ashton 8d 650
Hill James William Ashton 8d 650

Birth of children:
Births Mar 1906
Hill Jessie Ashton 8d 544

Births Mar 1908
Hill Rowland Ashton 8d 579

The 1920 Census tells us that they immigrated in 1914 and they are to be found listed on the Franconia. This is the entry for Rowland from FMP:

The father is listed as James W Hill.
