    Hi Kyra, The 1880 census for Lafayette has a Frank and Annie Joseph both born in New York with their daughter Mary Joseph born 1879 in California. Frank is a farmer. It is not unusual for birth dates to be out a little. They are the only family with the last name Joseph in Lafayette or close surrounding areas at this time. There is no census for 1890 which is tricky but I will keep searching and let you know. Interestingly, in 1901 there is an article in the Newspaper Archives for a Mamie Joseph appearing in a production in Salt lake City? Gathered this information from a quick search. I will look into it a bit deeper. Please feel free to call me if you would like!

      Sue,

      Thank you so much for your response! I was not aware of Mamie’s parents names or her father’s occupation. How interesting to see that she may have been affiliated with a SLC production. We have now looked into the census and found that indeed, Mamie’s birth year is slightly off. A colleague of mine mentioned most of the 1890 census was burned in a fire. However, please do look into the 1901 production. It would be fantastic to see if Mamie was in fact there in 1901 and where her life may have taken her. Keep us posted!

      Kind Regards,

      Kyra Mitchell
