           Joshua Mahony Jr. was possibly born on 12 August 1858 at Sheffield, Yorkshire, England. (I've searched the GRO extensively for Joshua's birth certificate and cannot find it. I've done a search for the years 1856-1861, but nothing turns up. Either it was never registered or it is grossly misspelled or wrongly filed. His siblings all had births registered so it is unlikely that his went unregistered)..11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20
