    Notes 
    • (Research):Question about his marriages?? When did Sarah Medearis die? Did Joseph re-marry? The age gap between Kitty and her older siblings, makes me think Sarah may not be the mother of all of Joseph's children (maybe about 1815 or so he re-married, and his second wife was probably Kitty & Emily's mother?)
