Joseph and Alice stayed in England, as did their other children including my great grandfather, William Edward. Joseph was born in Shipley, Derbyshire in 1837. He married Alice at Awsworth, Nottinghamshire in 1858 and the couple lived first in Shipley, then Staveley, (where William Edward was born) then Awsworth and then Shirebrook, where Alice died in 1903. Joseph lived on until 1914. He died at no 34 Lace Street, Nottingham whilst living with his daughter and son-in-law, after a long life of hard work in the collieries and a considerable amount of family tragedy.
This family are my mother's ancestors and they seemed to move backwards and forwards over the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire borders seeking employment. It must have been a hard life.
