I'd like to document the identities of the parents of Joseph Grose, of East Whitby township, Ontario Co, Ontario, Canada. Joseph Grose was born January 1804 in Cornwall, England, & he died July 10, 1896, at Mariposa, Victoria Co, Ontario. Joseph may be the same person as the Joseph Grose who was christened at Probus, Cornwall, June 24, 1804, son of John Grose & his wife, Eleanor Musgrave. Joseph Grose of East Whitby, Ont, married in England ca 1825-32, Elizabeth Unknown (1805 or '06--1871). Mrs Elizabeth Grose may be the same person as the Elizabeth James who married Joseph Grose on Oct 18th, 1828, at Gorran, Cornwall.
Joseph & Elizabeth Grose & their eldest childrenimmigrated to Canada ca 1842-45 & settled on a farm in East Whitby Township near Oshawa, east of Toronto.
Joseph & Elizabeth Grose had five known children: 1. Joseph Grose (b Cornwall, 1833; d Ont, 1905), of East Whitby, Ont; 2. Elizabeth Grose (b Cornwall, 1833; liv 1881; d Ont ????); 3. Edward James Grose (b Cornwall 1841; d Ont, 19~~), of E Whitby & Mariposa, Ont; 4. Michael Grose (b Ont, 1846; d Ont, 1897), of Mariposa, Victoria Co, Ont; 5. John Grose (b Ont 1848; d Ont 1891), of Peterborough, Ont. Joseph & Elizabeth may also have been the parents of William Jeffery Grose who was christened Oct 11, 1829, at Gorran, Cornwall, son of Joseph & Elizabeth Grose.
I'm hoping that Joseph & Elizabeth Grose of East Whitby, may show up on other Grose, James & Musgrave Family Trees. Any info anyone might be able to provide, will be greatly appreciated. Cheers! Count Caragata
