There is 20 or 30 year unexplained gap during which time Mary Ann re-marries before Joseph reappears possibly in 1901 and certainly by 1911. There was a Joseph Howard of the right age who sailed from Liverpool to Boston on 9 March 1874 on the SS Batavia, but this is sheer speculation. See the ISTG site, entry 19.
