Joseph Fothergill and Mabel Forbush

I am trying to trace Joseph Fothergill of any of his descendants. He is known to have emigrated from England to the USA, possibly to California (see below). He probably originated in Wensleydale, Yorkshire, England, born 1882 (d1935) he married Mabel Forbush and they had two sons, John Wesley Fothergill (b1908) and Joseph Alvin Fothergill(b1911). I have just discovered that Joseph Alvin lived in El Dorado, California and died in 1984. John Wesley married a Madeleine and they had one son, another John Wesley Fothergill(b1926) and a daughter Lois. John Wesley Fothergill Jr married a Margaret and went on to have four children, Nancy Gay, Wesley Daykin, Michael James, and Kevin. Lois married Jim Dougherty and they had five children, Marie, Terry, Tim, Johnny and Becky. I hope this is not too much information to digest. My mother is atill alive at 92 and often wonders what happened to her "Uncle Joe". One more clue, mother's second name is Minnola and she believes it came from the American connection. Any help would be much appreciated.
