Joseph Stearns of Boston, b. in England

I had been doing research for someone, & hit a dead end. I'm trying to find any record of a Joseph Stearns, but have had no luck.

According to his son Arthur's 1898 birth record, Joseph "Starns" was born in England, was a salesman, & lived at 6 Blossom St. in Boston.

Arthur's mother was Mary Ann Foley (b. 1873). She was listed as married for the 1900 census, but Joseph was not living with her. She married again in 1906, & at that time she is listed as widowed.

I cannot find a marriage or death record for Joseph, nor can I find him on the census. His wife was born & lived in Boston, so I'd think they would've married somewhere in the area. I can't find any record of an English born Joseph in Boston (he is consistantly said to have been born in England on records for son Arthur).
