This is odd. Parents married in 1844 and both died after 1881.

Mmn omitted in error?

I cannot find any other Cort baptism 1854 +/- 2yrs so Willis Joseph has to be the 7 yr old Joseph in 1861 and the 17 yr old Joseph Louis in 1871
 
Thanks emeltee.

Sometimes as William Joseph in references in Australia.
