JOSEPH ANTHONY was born around 1878 (according to marriage certificate of Joseph Anthony & Jennet Griffiths), his father's name was David and was a shoemaker. But I have found clues that he might have been born in 1874 in Neath, Glamorgan, Wales, UK to David and Margaret Anthony. In 1918 he was working as a Colliery Labourer and was an ex Private in the Royal Defense Corps. On 28 August 1937 he was a Millman at Tinplate works. Joseph lived in Station Road, Ystradgynlais, Wales, UK at the time of marriage. Joseph died in 1941, Ystradgynlais, Wales, UK.

Joseph Anthony married Jennet Griffiths in 1912 in Pontardawe, Glamorganshire, Wales. ref for ordering certificate Q4 11a 1995.
In the UK 1911 census there are 2 Jennet Griffiths' living in Pontardawe both born in Ystradgynlais one is aged 21 and the other 24 so difficult to say which family you are looking at.
Now I am into assumptions, looking at birth records of surname Anthony mothers maiden name Griffiths in Pontardawe throws up the following
Anthony T 1913 Q2 11a 2260:
Margaret 1914 Q1 11a 2283 :
Maggie 1918 Q1 11a 1918 :
Joseph J 1919 Q2 11a 1514 :
Elizabeth 1921 Q2 11a 2415
