Hi. I'm not related to this family. Here is a marriage for Josephine:

According to the 1910 Census of Coffeyville, Montgomery, KS, Josephine was born in Oklahoma, father b. Colorado, moth b. Kansas. In the 1920 Census it states that Josie was b. OK, fath b. CO, moth b. Iowa. In the 1930 Census Josie was b. OK, both parents b. CO.

Just on the basis of location, name & birth year, this might be Josie in 1905, living in Coffeyville with her family:

According to John's information (b. KS, par b. IN), this might be him in 1880:

And in 1875:

Caroline Pfaff        4 b. 1871 KS
John Austin        8 b. 1867 KS **
R B Pfaff        1 b. 1874 KS

Possibly John was the stepson of Jacob Pfaff and this might be the family in 1870:

Sorry the trail gets cold after that. I'm not positive these are your Austin/Austons but they might be. Hope this helps. Annie
