Joseph Treeby wrote a letter to his mother, 15 Sept 1852,
from Clayton Park, S. Circular Road, Dublin, Ireland. She was in Peoria County, Illinois. It is close to a park
and zoological garden.
Joseph had just arrived in Dublin on the 20 of Aug. 1852 with the military (excise). He was not happy there. He likely was transfered in from Liverpool.
His brother, Harry, recieved a bible in Dublin, near
"Cookst." Harry was married, lived in Liverpool, wife was
Lydia, and had "children".
"I am living not very far from Dophus Barn, the old house where we used to live".
His father was buried in Dublin.
William (1835, Devonshire) and Elizabeth (1837, Plymouth) were with thier mother in Peoria County, Illinois. The mother, Elizabeth, was buried in Camp Grove Cemetery, 1871.
( I assume that Samuel and Sarah, siblings of Joseph, who drowned in 1852 were buried in this cemetery also; or close to the home)

It is possible that the brother, Harry, is the Henry
Christopher Treeby, btz 1827 in St. Wesleyan, Devenport
(part of Plymouth), Devon, England to Henry and Elizabeth.
This Henry was in Plymouth in about 1840, then moved to
Liverpool. They had military men in their family.

Joseph is educated by the letter he writes to his mother.

Anyone reconize this family?
I have material on the family of William and his sister,
Elizabeth Treeby Jarman. William was my grandfather's
grandfather. Elizabeth Treeby Jarman married a second cousin to William's wife, Elizabeth Graham.
