Hi! Still have not been able to nail down birth location. New info that I have: B. 19 Aug 1852; D. 3 Sep 1896. Your Leroy Mason b. abt. 1843 in OH affords hope. Any census' that I have tied to "Joe" indicate birth location as England. I did find one that said he had last BEEN in OH. I'll follow up on Leroy and see what I can find. Some think Joe had a brother, James, who shows up with Joe on a few census'.
