Joseph Northend - England
My Great grandfather was Joseph Northend.He was born in England in the 1830's.He married Ellen Blackburn, probably in England sometime in the 1850's.
Sometime before 1860 they were in the United States.Joseph was a blacksmith and supposedly worked on the Monitor class ironclad ships at Greenspoint, NY.
They moved to Meadville PA sometime before 1880 and had five or six children:
Ellen Martha, Joseph, Alfred,and Elizabeth (my grandmother - born c. 1775)and Maud.
Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated.
