Looking for Joseph Winterborn of Dewsbury, Yorkshire

I recently began my family tree research, mainly using Ancestry.com. My surnames of interest are Thackrah, Winterborn, Firth and Waring. They are all from Dewsbury, Yorkshire, England and Pennsylvania, USA (mostly Philadelphia). My 4th greatgrandfather is Benjamin Thackrah b 1774 who married Patience Sheard on 22 Sept 1796. I have been surprised at how much I have been enjoying the search and feel so connected to the past- imagining their lives, joys and sorrows. I have hit a brickwall with Joseph Winterborn and wonder if anyone else has any info on his spouse (Nancy? Ann? Are they one and the same?) His, son Peter Winterborn is my great, great grandfather. Thanks!
