      1909 Dayton Herald newspaper article says Joseph was born in Calais, Maine.
      1900 USA Census says Joseph was born in Maine and that his father was born in England and his mother in Scotland.
      1900 USA Census also says Lewis' father (Joseph) was born in "Canada (Eng)".
      1880 USA Census says Joseph was born in Nova Scotia, Canada. Calais, Maine is on the USA-Canada border and is about 100 miles across the sea from Nova Scotia.

      Conclusion: it seems probable that he was born at Calais or closeby over the border in New Brunswick, Canada.

Worked on the Essex, signed up for one year but was compelled to stay until the end of the war (1865). Wounded again at Vicksburg, Mississippi.

    According to US Naval Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers 1866-1938, this was 10 May 1861 - official record likely to be more accurate than his own story given to newspaper.

    Joseph Shardalow (a not e) is named as one of many defendants in a New York Tribune newspaper notice of summons to the New York state Supreme Court. No indication of the offence/accusation. Other defendants include E N Little & Sons which was a New York painting company ("Little the big painter"). nb Joseph Shardelow was at this time residing in the Soldiers Home in Dayton, Ohio but after his sailor/soldier career he was a painter.

    Dayton Herald article about Joe says he was living here. Is this the same place he was living in the 1910 Census?
    The article includes a photo of him standing and tells his life story as a sailor who travelled the world and fought in four wars. He witnessed the charge of the Light Brigade at Balaklava. 
    Residence 15 Apr 1910  Jefferson, Cleveland, Ohio, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    1910 USA Census shows Joseph as an inmate in the National Military Home here. It states he was born in Indiana although we think it was Calais, Maine because that was what a Dayton Herald newspaper article in 1909 says that is where he was born and specifies his precise date of birth. The 1910 Census also says his father and mother were born in Kentucky.
