Joseph George Anson 1842 - 1913
« on: Thursday 28 December 17 13:51 GMT (UK) »
I have a mystery with Joseph George Anson.

He was born in Hambleton Yorkshire in 1842; He married Elizabeth Webster in October 1864.
At the 1871 census he lived at Chapel St. Hambleton, with his wife and 2 daughters Mary Elizabeth and Ada. He was a potato merchant and agricultural engine driver employing 1 labourer.
After 1871 he disappears.
The next reference to him is a gravestone in York cemetery, where he, his wife Elizabeth, and daughter Mary Elizabeth Marshall (Anson) are buried. His inscription says that he died 11th March 1913 in the USA

I have no idea how, or why he went to the USA. I can find no record of his passage there, or where in the USA he died.
