Joseph Watkin c1858 and c1887
Posted by: michelle read (ID *****0842) Date: March 31, 2009 at 10:36:53

My grandfather is Joseph Watkin born Barnsley 1915. My great-grandparents are Joseph Watkin born ?Pontefract 1887 and Hannah Slack. My great-great-grandparents are Joseph Watkin born c1858 and Elizabeth Guest.

I have found several people related to Hannah and Elizabeth and can trace their families back many generations.

Unfortunately, the tree branch that means the most to me is Watkin - and I can find no trace of Joseph Watkin prior to his marriage in Wombwell, Barnsley on 29/11/1885. He details his father as also being named Joseph, a maltster born in Pontefract. But I can't find either Joseph c1858 or his family on any census.

Is Joseph Watkin on your tree? Can you shed any light on this for me?
