      Parents were Scotch, raised in Hamilton, Scotland. Returned to England in 1822.

      The family arrived in New York Aug 24, 1842 from Liverpool England aboard the SS Europe. Listed on the manifest are Joseph age 42; Ann age 36; John age 13; Elizabeth age 7; Thomas age 5; Sarah as infant. The ship's master was Samuel Barker. They shared the voyage, which lasted about nine weeks, with 199 additional immigrants.

      They settled in Buffalo NY where Joseph was a shoemaker. His son John helped his father in the business and became a shoemaker himself. The business was located at 441 Michigan Street.

      The family moved to Milwaukee, WI in 1848, and settled in Addison, WI by 1850. At some point before 1860 they moved to West Bend. In 1871 Joseph and his wife removed to Weston WI to spend their last days on the farm of their daughter Mary Jane.
