  The 19 year old Joseph looks to be this one....

  Joseph Hartshorn m Eliza Cooper 1878 Atcham q3.

 I was thinking along the lines of him being Edwin Joseph or Joseph Edwin by name and only using one on the census.
 Does the marriage cert still state fathers name and whether alive or deceased.

 My grt grandad gave fathers name as John Green when he married.....but John Green died 6 years before he was born his mother had a lodger John Millard who she married the following year and all the children became Millards on 1891/1901 census. So we do have to lean a little in another direction sometimes.

Thanks Tazzie.
I had noticed Joseph's marriage to Eliza Cooper but unless I find someone who actually knows of his family I seem to be unable to link my GGrandmother, Eliza, to him. It is so frustrating isn't it!
When Eliza married in 1906 she gave her fathers name as Joseph and his work as coal miner which would fit AND  I havebeen unable to find any other Joseph to fit the dates and area too.
