Spouses/Children:
1. Sarah Middleton

Joseph Greenwood

  • Born: 26 Feb 1818, Saxton In Elmet, West Yorkshire England
  • Marriage (1): Sarah Middleton in 1860 in St Mary the Virgin, Hunslet, near Leeds, West Yorkshire England
  • Died: Mar 1900, Saxton In Elmet, West Yorkshire England at age 82

  General Notes:

The 1871c entry for this family lists a James Smith aged 20 and thus bo rn c1851. He is the child of Sarah, from a previous marriage. I am unsu re whether or when Joseph and Sarah married. There is certainly no reco rd on the IGI.
(The 1861c entry has him as a 10 year old)

Charles, the next eldest member of the family (and Florence Middletons Gra ndfather) was variously recorded as Greenwood and Greenwood-Smith. He w as buried as Greenwood-Smith, and that is how Florence knew him, but in t he 1881 census, he was a Greenwood.

George Greenwood/Greenwood Smith are almost certainly the same person.
