Since you know when Josephine died, and where she is buried, have you had a chance to obtain a copy of her death certificate? It should show the names of her parents. Once you have her father's name you can check census records, beginning with 1860 when she would be about 7 yrs old. Then follow the family through census records, you will pick up names of any siblings, plus other family data, too.

Have you checked census from 1880 through 1920 for William and Josephine? You never know what family member may live with them at any given time. Often older family members will spend their "golden" years with younger family members. Happy Hunting.
