I have a written record which says that he died in 1864 aged 72.

The problem with ages at death is that it's only as good as the person's knowledge
of the deceased.
I wouldn't take as read that he was 72.
Along with the census where he says he was between 40-44 (ages were rounded down in 1841)
really means he could have been born any time in the 1790's which doesn't help at all.

What would bother me is that the marriage was at Stretton on Fosse which is very close to the boundary of Gloucestershire and near to Oxfordshire and Worcestershire so why pick Staffordshire as his place of birth unless there is good evidence to support it.

I know that people did travel a lot, his journey to Canada proves that but I would be wanting more evidence, we have to remember that not all records are online and not all children were baptised.

Edwin was next.
I'm not convinced that Joseph's father would have been an Edwin!

Joseph & Susannah’s eldest son was called Edwin. He died in Canada.
On Joseph’s headstone, it says that he originated in Staffordshire
