The Common Room / Looking for Joseph WRIGHT b approx 1850 & family
« on: Friday 30 October 20 20:18 GMT (UK)  »
On which board can I post this topic?

Looking for the family of Joseph Wright, but have no idea which County they were from.

Joseph Wright born c 1847  or 1851/52
Wife Martha Hale born c 1849 or 1851/52
Daughter Elizabeth born possibly October 1868
Son Albert 1877
Son Joseph 1879

They had further children in America

According to the USA census 1900 Joseph aged 48 says he was born October 1851 and married 1867, immigrated 1887
Martha also gives her age as 48 (1851)

1910 census Joseph 58 says he was born 1852 and immigrated in 1883

The daughter Elizabeth married into my paternal family and on the marriage says she was born England 14 October 1868.

If Joseph and Martha were born 1851 they would be 17 when Elizabeth was born!

Trying to find the family in England.

Thank you for suggestions
