It has been a while since you posted this, but here goes. I have a Joseph Barnsley, likely born in the very late 1830s or early 1840s (has children born in the 1860s)and who died in 1900 or so at Cradley Heath, W. Midlands, which is in the Dudley area. Joseph married a Caroline Sidaway and together they had 10 children. One of them is a direct ancestor of mine, Albert, b.about 1860. He went to Scotland to be with sister Rachel when his marriage soured, and is thought to have died there. Albert's sibling, Elijah Thomas Barnsley, b. 1866, married Leah Priest and had 6 children.
