I came upon this family accidentally when looking for a Catherine JOSE ... I have no connection to these people but thought I'd share my findings in case they are beneficial to someone else!
Joseph Harris JOSE was born abt 1817 in England according to the 1881 Census and in 1845, he married Catherine ROBERTS - their marriage is registered in Stoke Damerel Reg Dist in Devon, England.
Marriages Mar 1845 (>99%)
JOSE Joseph Harris Stoke Damerel 9 483
ROBERTS Catherine Stoke Damerel 9 483
They had several children that I was able locate but this list is just a brief search:
1] Joseph Harris JOSE Jr birth registered in East Stonehouse, Devon RD in 1851
Births Jun 1851 (>99%)
JOSE Joseph Harris E Stonehouse 9 376
2] Catherine Roberts JOSE b abt 1860 in Canada
3] Mary Ann JOSE b abt 1863
4] Jane Mercer JOSE b abt 1868
Hopefully this helps someone!
I had wondered if this JOSE family was connected in some way with the Cornwall JOSE family but so far, have found no connection.
