Zib There was a Joseph Glasson in Grass Valley arriving in 1853 with his married brother John.. he was born in 1844 in Redruth to John Penhall GLASSON and Honor BISHOP. Joseph died in 1869 at Grass Valley and is buried in the Odd Fellows and Masonic Cemetery. I was not aware that he married. However, I do note that a Honor M Glasson, married, of Grass Valley, born in England, died in 1894 and is buried in the same cemetery as Joseph, although Joseph shares a headstone with his brother James. I note also that in the newspaper "Morning Union" she is stated to be the relict of the late Joseph GLASSON.
Morning Union, Volume 52, Number 7114 1894/01/07 DIED. GLASSON — At Grass Valley, January 6, 1894, Honor M., relict of the late Joseph Glasson, aged 47 years; a native of England.
As a matter of interest Honor BISHOP was the daughter of William BISHOP and Grace MICHELL.

Thanks! They married sometime between the 1871 English Census and the 1880 US one. Daughter Elizabeth is also called Ruth Elizabeth by family and was born about 1877. She married Court Simmons Hicks. My connection is to him, but I can't tie him to any of my Semmons crew as yet. I've found 3 children for Honor & Joseph: John Aug 5 1873, Elizabeth 1877-ish and Joseph Feb 8 1879. From what I can tell, only Elizabeth married. Nov 28 1901
Court was the son of Henry Holman Hicks and Anna Maria Provis. The best guess I have re: Henry is an 1847 birth with mother's maiden name Holman, but that's a few years younger than he appears to be. Anna Maria's mother, Amelia Pearce 1838, seems to have been illegitimate. This one is a toughie!
I have come to the realization that the husband of Honor Major Michell was not the son of John Penhale Glasson and Honor Bishop, because his children were born after the death of the Joseph buried with James. He was living at the time of the 1880 Census. Back to the old drawing board! Candidates from the GRO index:
