[month of birth for Joseph left blank; math doesn't work out on year of birth and age shown for Manerva; on the name of 4th child, looks like Benjamin was crossed out and Frank added - could it be his name was Benjamin Franklin and they called him Frank?]
Since you know when and where Joseph died, you can obtain a copy of his death certificate, which should show the names of his parents.
