Joseph, George - Descendants

The Descendants of William and Annie Joseph

The Descendants of George Joseph

 

Introduction to Joseph and Other Welsh Names

 

This is a brief summary of the descendants of George Joseph of Carmarthenshire, Wales.  The patronymic naming system (after the father) is by far the most common method of naming in Wales.  Before the 19th century there were usually no established last names in Wales.  People remembered their “pedigree” as a string of names - sometimes as many as nine - like William ap Robert ap Thomas, etc. This would be William, the son of Robert, the son of Thomas, etc.  A woman would also take her father’s name, so she would be Ann ferch Robert ap Thomas, or Ann, the daughter of Robert, the son of Thomas, etc.  When some Welsh people began using last names like the English did, the “ap” was usually replaced by an “s” on the end to indicate possession, English-style (William ap William became William Williams, David ap John became David Johns or David Jones).  Joseph, like some other Welsh names (Morgan, Llewelyn, etc.), usually stayed “pure” (without the English “s”). During the beginning of the Methodist movement in Wales in the late 1700’s, Old Testament first names like Joseph, Samuel, and Isaac became popular.  Gradually the English surname system became adopted in many parts of Wales, and about 1813 the English required that last names be written on all parish records by introducing new baptismal and burial forms.  This meant that “William ap Joseph” would become William Joseph, and the same Welsh last name would now begin to be used for more than one generation.

 

The Joseph last name is not a common name by Welsh standards - only about 0.22% of the people in Wales have it.  However, the number of different last names in Wales is MUCH smaller than in England, so a last name shared by 0.22% of the people in England would be a very common name!  For example, 56% of all the people in Wales have one of  the ten most common Welsh last names.  14% of the people in Wales have the last name Jones and 9% are named Williams. In England, only 5% of the people have one of the ten most common English last names and Smith, the most common English last name, is shared by only 1.33% of the population.  Barely 0.5% of the population has the last name Taylor, the second-most-common English name!  The reason for this is that in Wales the naming system is almost totally patronymic, while in England it is a mixture of patronymic (Johnson, Robertson), occupations (Smith, Taylor), physical traits (Long, Short), colors (White, Green), place names (Windsor, London), titles (Duke, King), and so on.

 

The numbering format used below assigns a 1 to the earliest known ancestor.  1.1 would be the first child of the earliest ancestor, and 1.2 is the second child of the earliest ancestor.  1.2.4, for example, would be the fourth child of the second child of the earliest ancestor.

 

The Josephs in Wales

 

The Josephs came from Carmarthenshire, a county in southwest Wales.  This area, even today, is one of the strongest Welsh-speaking regions of the country.  St. Ishmael’s parish is located near the point where the Towy River flows into the Burry Inlet of Carmarthen Bay.  The earliest record of the Josephs is in Llansaint, a small town on the top of a steep hill in St. Ishmael’s (Llanishmel) parish.  The (VERY old!) parish church is located down the hill about two miles west of Llansaint, with a spectacular view of the Towy River estuary.  Two Joseph marriages and a number of baptisms and burials occurred at the St. Ishmael’s church. 

Llansaint is best known for its cockle women. It was one of the principal centers for the cockle industry of Carmarthen Bay. Tierney, in 1900, described it thus:

"Llansaint ...... a place inhabited for generations by a somewhat primitive and exceedingly hardy race of people who live by gathering shellfish, especially cockles. The trade is almost entirely in the hands of the women, often assisted by children. The business seems to pay them remarkably well ... there is some truth in the old saying, so well known in St. Ishmael's parish, that "he who marries a Llansaint woman marries a fortune".

 

Later the Josephs moved to Llanelli, located on the northeastern shore of the Burry Inlet of Carmarthen Bay.  Llanelli had early importance as a port town – especially after the exploitation of surface coal began in the 17th century.  The Llanelly Copperworks Company was founded in 1804.  (Note that the original Welsh spelling is Llanelli, but the English spelling – with a ‘y’ - was used until 1963.  The official name of the town has now reverted to the Welsh word – Llanelli.)  By the middle of the 19th century, Llanelli’s two main industries were coal mining and copper smelting.  The growth of the coal industry had slowed by that time.  Less surface coal was available, and the development of deep mines elsewhere in South Wales had begun.

 

Llanelli was a hotbed of religious activity, too.  John Wesley preached there six times, and David Rees, a famous preacher in Llanelli, preached at Capel Als, an Independent chapel, from 1829 until his death in 1869.  He also founded three other chapels between 1840 and 1850.  David Rees edited a magazine, Y Diwygiwr (The Reformer) which was circulated all over Wales.  Although Rees was spectacularly successful in his ministry, he was not always popular with either the Church of Wales (Anglican) or other Protestant denominations, especially Baptists.  Another preacher of the time, Dr. J.R. Morgan, wrote the following lines (loosely translated from Welsh) to describe Rees:

 

Baptists are godless, Priests are false,

Truth is found nowhere, except at Capel Als.

 

William and Ann Joseph were married in Capel Als in late 1846 – during the tenure of the Rev. David Rees mentioned above.  Another aspect of religious life at that time was the rise of Mormonism in South Wales – particularly in Llanelli and especially among coal miners and copper workers like the Josephs.  Although brothers David Henry and William Joseph both married in Llanelli, they and most of the rest of the immediate Joseph family were not there in the 1851 census.  We know that the Josephs made several stops in other coal mining areas of Wales before emigrating to the United States.  In June of 1849, Joseph Henry became a Latter-Day Saint and the same year he was ordained successively to the office of a deacon, priest, and the next year to an elder.  William and Ann went first to Bedwellty in Monmouthshire, southeastern Wales, where son Henry was born in February of 1849.  They then moved west a bit to Penydarren (presumably to join other members of the Joseph family – see below) in the county of Glamorganshire, then slightly northeast to Dowlais, where they arrived in 1850.  William, Ann, and family are listed in the 1851 Glamorganshire census in Tramroadside, Dowlais.  There were a number of tramroads; the specific location of this one was by the Gellifaelog Bridge across the Morlais Brook in the southwestern part of Dowlais.  William and Ann Joseph are also listed as the last two “starting” members of the Mormon congregation at Dowlais – joining June 8, 1851.  (Since they lived in Dowlais, they probably transferred for convenience reasons; they had been members of the Penydarren congregation before that time.)  According to LDS records at Dowlais, they stayed there until at least late 1853 with the exception of a two-month stay back in Llanelli between August and October, 1853.  Older brother David Joseph and his family were also known to be Mormons in Wales.  David and the other Josephs lived on Lower Elim Street (named after the Elim Baptist Chapel on the street) in northeast Penydarren.  Note that Penydarren and Dowlais abut, so the distance between Elim Street and Tramroadside by the Gellifaelog Bridge is less than half a mile.  Medical records of Dowlais Iron Company workmen seen by F. J. Dyke, surgeon, in 1855/1856, indicate that someone in the family of David Joseph, collier, on Lower Elim Street was seen in that period.  The visit(s) may well have been associated with the birth of daughter Sarah Joseph in 1855.

 

In March of 1853, Joseph Henry Joseph landed in New York on his way to Utah.  He took out a marriage license on January 29th, 1855, and married Mary Ann Richards from Merthyr Tydfil on February 15th in Meigs County.  Census records indicate that William and Ann Joseph arrived in America in 1856.  Since son Joseph was born in Wales in 1853 and son John was born in Ohio in 1857, this certainly would support a year close to 1856.  David Henry Joseph, his wife Sarah, and their children sailed to America on the clipper ship Underwriter, a ship chartered by the Mormons, and landed in New York on May 1st, 1860.

 

The 1860 Meigs County, Ohio, census shows three Joseph families, headed by brothers, in Minersville, Sutton Township.  William and Ann Joseph headed one family.  David Joseph, 38 years old, and his wife Sarah headed a second family.  Also, Joseph H. Joseph, 29 years old, and his wife Mary A. headed a third.  Anne Joseph, the mother of the three brothers, was living with Joseph and listed as 60 years old.  David and Sarah’s oldest daughter was named Ann – presumably after her grandmother.  Ann was christened in Llanelli on November 2, 1845.

 

A fourth Joseph brother, John Henry Joseph, also came to Meigs County and settled in Syracuse, just upriver from Minersville.

 

The Josephs along the Ohio River

 

The Pomeroy area, along with the area east of Youngstown, contained the richest known coal deposits in Ohio before the development of the “Great Vein” (the Straitsville coal vein) in Perry County.  There was some mining in Pomeroy (Salisbury Township) itself, but the greatest activity was in Minersville, Sutton Township, about two miles east along the Ohio River.  Most of the miners were Welsh or German, and there was a small community just northwest of Minersville, still shown on today’s maps, called Welshtown.

 

Joseph Henry and Mary Ann Joseph had two sons, William Henry (born in 1856) and John Thomas (1858), in nearby Syracuse and Minersville.  Joseph Henry’s brother William and wife Ann had most of their children in Meigs County beginning with John in 1857.  The oldest brother David Henry’s daughter, Ann Joseph, was married to Robert Lewis on July 13, 1861, in Meigs County by Rev. William Edwards.  In addition, the last two children of David Henry and Sarah, William and Ann, were born in Minersville in 1862 and about 1867, respectively. 

 

According to a descendant of John Henry Joseph, John Henry came to America in 1856 and settled in Syracuse.  A Henry Joseph married Ann Jane Davis on August 23, 1856.  There is no record of that Henry Joseph in Meigs County in 1860.  That MAY have been John Henry Joseph.  According to family lore, John Henry may have returned to Wales for a time before coming to America permanently.

 

In the 1860s the Joseph brothers split up.  Joseph Henry left first, in 1861, and moved his family to Utah.  David Henry, the oldest, first headed north (Trumbull County, Ohio) in about 1869, then went west the next year on the Mormon Trail but stopped well short of Utah, homesteading land in Platte County, Nebraska.  William and Ann stayed in Minersville until about 1868, when they moved across the river to Clifton, Mason County, West Virginia and eventually to Shawnee, Perry County, Ohio.  John Henry moved south and eventually settled in Rockwood, Roane County, Tennessee.
