Birth: Oct. 27, 1796
Leeds Point
Atlantic County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Oct. 15, 1873
Cedar Grove
Gloucester County
New Jersey, USA

In memory of Capt. Joel Leeds, the son of Richard and Sarah H. Leeds.

Joel began life in the Leeds Point area of Atlantic County, New Jersey. He was a sailor, a carpenter and then a Sea Captain, eventually moving to Gloucester City, Camden County.

Joel and first wife Amy's children are linked below.

There is another possible son named Benjamin, born 1830. In the 1850 census Benjamin was living with Sarah Ann Leeds Lacy (sister?) and her family, however relationship is uncertain, he could've been a cousin.

After Amy's passing, Joel married a second time, to Caroline P. Rix. He passed away in 1873 just 12 days shy of his 77th birthday.

If any descendant lives in the area, the Camden County Historical Society's public library has a couple of old maps of the cemetery, a book that lists the epitaphs, and also deeds for the plots and records of burials, which were donated by the new owner of the cemetery to the historical society.
