Happy to be of some help - many people have helped me over the years.

Just be sure to take everything with a large helping of salt until it is proven.  For instance, there is a good possibility that the William J. Bakewell you found

Quote
"...was originally an English Unitarian, then a Low Churchman ó has since returned to the Episcopal Church."
could well be a different person since this appears in a book about "Founding families of Pittsburgh".  Too little info to make a determination as yet.

I've been burned before by uncommon names that were in no way unique.

McLellan - Inverness
Greer - Renfrewshire
Manson - Aberdeen & Orkney
Simpson - Hereford, Devon, etc.
Flett - Orkney
Chisholm - Scotland
Wishart - Orkney
Shand - Aberdeen
Pirie - Aberdeen

Hi All

Still adrift on husband's laptop (all my p/words etc are stuck in cyber land at present :-\)

From my searches yesterday (and you know how working off memory can go horribly wrong as when I had my Shakespeare moment† ::)),† you need to tread with care on potential parents for Josiah - Mary Ann's we are more confident on at the moment until you get confirmation from the MC).

These are the possible sets of parents I came across yesterday:

1. RICHARD BAKEWELL and ISABELLA BURCHELL    
Marriage: 21 NOV 1807 Saint Martin, Birmingham, Warwick
   
If you do a parent search on IGI for their children, interesting set of names quite in line with naming of a Josiah.

2. WILLIAM BAKEWELL and SARAH JENNINGS
Marriage: 15 APR 1811 Aston Juxta Birmingham, Warwick, England

I think from the list of children you posted for a William B. and a Sarah, there is a possibility that you are mixing up children for this couple and the one below.

3. WILLIAM JOHNSTON BAKEWELL and SARAH NEEDHAM
Marriage: 02 JAN 1821 St Annes, Liverpool, Lancashire

This is the couple who show as having migrated to the US (from memory - so health warning!) I think I found them in PA in 1850 and William showed as a 'teacher'. This family also has a tree on Ancestry.

4. THOMAS BAKEWELL and SARAH GLOVER
Marriage: 06 MAY 1809 Trentham, Stafford

I include this couple as they show on IGI as having a son Josiah in 1817 in Stone, Stafford.

I completely agree with you guys and gals! I have no hard facts as of yet but sifting through all of it is pretty exciting, and yes I have taken it with many grains of salt. The hardest part is that the names back then were so common that it is hard to distinguish between who is whom.

I didnt know you had a Shakespeare moment recently  ;). I just wish I knew with any amount of clarity who Josiah's parents were. I will certainly be acquiring that MC as soon as I can but I just want to make sure it has what I need. I shall be placing a call for across the pond quite soon I have a feeling  8)

Sincerely,

J. Bakewell

I have a feeling that my grandmother was right and his parents are named William and Sarah but for Sarah's last name I have no evidence and little insight. Looking at what you posted it seems that #2 best fits but lets see what that MC says! Thanks again so much

Sincerely,

J. Bakewell
