The family stayed in England until after the death of his father, 26 May 1881. Joseph most likely emmigrated between 1891-1892. His family, including his mother, followed him to Maine. They arrived in Boston, 2 Sep 1893, aboard the Cephalonia. In leaving England, the Anderson family leaves relatives behind, including cousins with the surname of Dodd.

By 1900, Joseph can be found in Biddeford, York County, Maine, working in the cotton mills. Joseph lives out his life in Maine. At the time of his death, he was working as a loom dresser and he died of a brain tumor.

Biddeford Weekly Journal, Biddeford, Maine, 28 Apr 1911, page 3, under the headline Joseph Anderson.

Joseph Anderson, a well known resident of this city who underwent an operation at the Trull hospital some 10 days ago for an affection of the brain died Monday at that institution, the efforts of the surgeons to prolong his life proving of no avail. The operation, which is know as trapanning and which is a very delicate one, was performed for the purpose of removing a tumor from the brain, a part of the skull being removed. It was performed by Dr. H. F. Twitchell of Portland, who was assisted by Dr. F. E. Small of this city.

For a time following the operation the patient seemed to improve, but more recently there was a change for the worse, when it was realized that nothing could be done for the unfortunate man.

Mr. Anderson was a slosher tender on the Pepperell and lived at 17 Middle Street, where the funeral will be held, notice of which will be given later. His age was about 47 years. He came to this country from England a number of years ago and had since that time resided in this city. He is survived by a wife and nine children.
