Joseph Ullatt c1867

Anne Eaden 1842 married Thomas Lowbridge in 1859 (he died in 1860) . Ann then married John Ullatt in 1867. He had previously been married to Charlotte Caton. On the marriage certificate it states that John was a widower but records show that Charlotte married again to Frederick Yates in 1869. John appears to have had a son called Joseph born c1867. I am having difficulty finding who the biological mother of Joseph is ( Charlotte or Anne.)
John had a number of bigamous marriages incuding the one to my relative Ann Eaden. Death index state Joseph was born abt 1866.
Could anyone please advise me.

Joseph seems to have been born in burntwood Staffordshire. Charlotte married Frederick Yates in Durham . She died in Durham England

Joseph appears on a number of trees on Ancestry. Some have Catherine and some Mary Ann as his mother. I doubt wether you will ever find which one it was.
