Birth: Feb. 4, 1873

Death: 1954

Joseph married Sadie Bell Insprucker on February 16, 1898 in Fayette Co., Indiana. They were the parents of five children. Joseph married second, Mrs. Ethel Gillespie, in 1928.

Joseph stayed on his father's farm until he married Miss Sadie Bell Insprucker in February of 1898. They began farming for themselves and later that year their first child, a son, Russell was born. They built a home on a small acreage they bought from the home place south of Connersville and Joseph was operating a route for a creamery when the younger children were born. Sadie died in April 1909 just a few weeks after the birth of Anna Irene. The grandparents took Irene and cared for her, while Joseph went back to farming, near Springersville, so he could be home with the other children and with Gladys (then eight years of age keeping house), he kept the family together. Joseph bought a farm near Liberty and later married a young widow, Mrs. Ethel Gillespie, in September 1928. He continued farming near Liberty as long as he was physically able and then moved into town in 1938 and they still reside there.
