The info on Josiah is very interesting but does confuse me a bit. How and why did he end up in Northampton, Montgomery and Lehigh Co., Pa. Family Searchrecords show Josiah P. and was a stone Mason.Jacob father or son of Josiah P. was a stone mason, too, a teacher and mason. The list is for men between 20 and 35 and single menbetween 35 and 45. Josiah should not have been single in 1863.Our Josiah is E in the 1850 census and P in 1860. Actually the E in 1850 could have been P as it was hard to read. Our Josiah was a stone mason so that matches. This is interesting.Their is another lady near Philadelphia that has a Josiah name, too but of Scottish decent. Also I thought my Josiah was Josiah E. not P.Do you know what P would stand for in the 1860 census? I could not find his wife, Mary in the June 1870 census but Granville was in Philadelphia living with Andrew Bright 37 and Marcellene. (Marcellene is spelled differently in every census I found her.) Both Andrew and Granville are house painters. In a 2nd 1870 census in November Granville has been replaced by a 6 mo old son, Jesse Bright. Andrew's birthplace is Pennsylvania and his wife was born in either New York or Pa depending on which census is correct.Andrew is probably the Andrew Bright who served in the Civil War 25 May 1861 to 16 June 1864. But was he related to Granville? I have not found his father but one census has him as a Jr. In 1860 I found him as And. Bright. I just wish all these years still nothing concrete. D.C. had pension records filed by Mary A. Cowgill and was denied because not married to Josiah while he was in the civil war. Ancestry.Com shows Josiah P.
