    Notes 
    • Joseph says he is single at New York marriage but an identically named and aged man with similar parents was previously married in England. Thanks to correspondent Dora Liddell we know the man jumped ship in Malta in 1903 and we have concluded that it is the same person. Dora also provided us with a copy of the Royal Navy service record for a Joseph Howes which proves it was indeed the same person. The US WW1 draft card reinforces that proof.

      A Joseph Howes is a fireman aboard a steamship in New York in 1910
