Connecticut, USA
Death: unknown

Grand Isle County

Joseph and his wife are both buried in the Jerusalem Cemetery, North Hero, Grand Isle Co., Vt., but they have no gravestones and when they died has not been learned. Arrived in North Hero, Grand Isle Co., VT in 1788. He and Olive had nine children, several of whom settled in North Hero. Sons Daniel and Solomon each reared large families there. The family settled in North Hero as early as the spring of 1790. The census of that year gives five males and two females in the family. The fact that the birth records of only three children have been found in Connecticut indicates that the family may have sojourned for a time in south western Vermont, though no trace of Joseph Hazen has been discovered in Bennington or Middletown, where related families stopped on their migration to Grand Isle Co. "Granther Joe of pleasant memory, a very spiritual man, considered a sort of seer in his day," is said to have endured patiently the trial of a wife of not the sweetest temper. Their first home in North Hero was on a part of the farm which descended to their youngest son, and was later owned by his son Uriah Henry Hazen. ; Their last days were spent in a small house near the home of their son Solomon, not far from the cemetery where they are buried. The name of Joseph Hazen is on the roll of the 9th Co. (Capt. John Durkee of Norwich), 3d Conn. Regt. (Col. Eleazer Fitch), dated Fort Edward 19 Oct. 1758. He is also on the muster roll of the 3d Co. (John Durkee of Norwich, Major and Captain), 4th Regt. (Col. Eleazer Fitch) in the campaign of 1760.
