Thanks, Donald. The only problem is, the only name I have is Joseph B. I
don't know parents, siblings or what county in PA he was born in. Do you
have any other suggestions for me? Thanks again.

On the census look at the page and line on which they appear in the
If the page number is the same and the line number runs consecutive
most likely are family with the first being the father, the second being
wife & the rest being Children in age order, in most cases. Also
the names, as back then fathers name was most often assigned to the oldest
son and the mothers surname given to daughters or as the middle name of
second son. This is not a hard and fast rule, but if you consider
will be to your advantage. Look for a flow of names down the family chart.
Again good luck.
