Hi Cathy, Yes, Joseph Nathan Grose was the grandson of the Joseph Grose who was born in Cornwall, England in 1804, & his wife Elizabeth. Here's what I have on Joseph Nathan Grose, his parents & his wife Ida & children. I have Ida's maiden name listed as McWatters, not Marshall:
Joseph Grose II (born Cornwall, England, 1833; died East Whitby, Ontario, July 24, 1905), twin with his sister Elizabeth; (Grose spelt as “Grase” in the printed 1881 Canadian Census); may be the same person as the Joseph Grose, son of Joseph & Elizabeth, who was christened at the same time as Elizabeth, also child of Joseph & Elizabeth Grose, at Gorran (only 8 or 10 miles from Probus), County Cornwall, England, May 28, 1834; yeoman farmer; resided in Raglan, East Whitby, Ontario; was not residing with his wife & children re 1901 Cdn Census; married in Ontario circa 1865, Fanny Hazzelwood (born Ontario, March 5, 1836; died ante 1905), was living with her children in East Whitby re 1901 Cdn Census; predeceased her husband;
Joseph & Fanny Grose had issue:
1. Joseph Nathan Grose (born East Whitby Twp, Ont, Oct 14, 1867), farm laborer; of Raglan, north of Whitby, Ont, in 1921, & of East Whitby Twp re the 1901 Cdn Census; married Ida A. McWatters (born USA, Sept 1869; died Raglan, Ontario County, Ont, Jan 5, 1921; buried in Mt Carmel Cemetery) [daughter of James McWatters, by his wife, Alice Anne Marshall]
2. Albert James Grose (born East Whitby Twp, Ont, July 3, 1871, or July 2, 1872, re 1901 Cdn Census), farm laborer; of East Whitby in 1901
3. Nathan Hazzelwood Grose (born East Whitby Twp, Ont, Aug 14, 1874), agent & barber; of East Whitby in 1901
4. Charlotte A. Grose (born East Whitby Twp, Ont, Feb 5, 1879), of East Whitby in 1901
My friend is a descendant of the Groses of East Whitby. I would very much like to compare notes with you. Thank You, Count Caragata
