Notes for Joseph (Spouse 1)
It is possible that Sophronia is Joseph's second wife. If we are correct in having the Joseph who married Emily as his son, then he had to have had two wives, based on ages and the range in birthdates of the children. His family were described as paupers in the 1860 census return, which also lists his age as 54 years, an apparent error for 64.
