Descendants of Joseph Crew

Generation No. 1

1. Joseph1 Crew may have been the son of John Crew and Dinah Rhodes and, if true, was born October 16, 1813 in Bramley By Leeds, Yorkshire Co., England. So far, no proof has been located which definitely shows that the Joseph Crew of Yorkshire and the Joseph Crew of Prince Edward Island were one and the same person. Joseph Crew of P.E.I. died January 12, 1892 in Prince Edward Island. He married (1) Martha Rose. He married (2) Margaret Taylor Abt. 1836. She was born Abt. 1817 in Prince Edward Island, and died February 04, 1890 in Prince Edward Island.
