Ramsay, Joseph Sobey

Birth Name Ramsay, Joseph Sobey
Gender male
Age at Death 73 years, 5 months, 13 days

Narrative

Joseph was born in 9 Nov 1857, but not baptized until 16 May 1864. In the 1871 New Brunswick census, he was age 10. On the 1901 census, Joseph's date of birth was May 5 1852, and he said he was born in New Brunswick - a mistake also made by his brothers and sisters. His grandson Merritt filled out his death certificate, but did not know much about his grandfather.

I believe he is the Joseph Ramsay who married Kate Murphy, in part because he named a daughter Rebecca.
