There is a question here as to whether Joseph is truly Edward's son or whether he's Elizabeth's child from a former marriage.  Their marriage record or DNA testing could determine which.

*Middlesex St
Edward cannot have been born before 1850 because he does not appear in the 1850 census with his parents.  He first appears in the census in 1860, where he is age 9.  Florence and Howard are Mary's children from her prior marriage.  If this record is accurate, and Edward & Mary have been married ten years, Edward must have married Mary when she was pregnant with Howard.

5a.  1910 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  Can't find Edward.  Elizabeth and Jacob not found, either.  Nor Mary.  Son Joseph is married and living in Royersford.  The other children are living together in Gloucester (see next source).

There's no obvious relationship between Robert & Sophia BLACKBURN and the four FRIER/STRAUB children.
