Joseph Cressey was born: 18??? and married a Mary Kerridge [Herridge] born: 18???
they were married in 1830 at Otley Church in Suffolk, England.
I have found the marriage records in Suffolk, do you have any of this in your family??? I know they came to America around 1840/1841 and they had three children together: Their first child was: James Cressey b. 8 December 1830 and was Baptized at Otley Church in Suffolk.
Their second child was: Samuel Cressey b. 1833 and was Baptized at Otley Church in Suffolk.
Their third child was: Joseph Cressey b. 10 July 1836 [d. 1876 in Hillsdale, Michigan] and was Baptized at St. Mary's Church in Helmingham, Suffolk ------
can you tell me more about the Kerridge surname, like where did it come from? It is not a 'popular' surname....
