Joseph Brooks Caddell was born on June 15, 1840 in Bibb County, Alabama to John Arthur and Sarah Suttle Caddell. He had eight siblings and they were John G., William, Maryann Elizabeth, Nancy Evalyn, Isaac, Benjamin, Luarany and Sarah Jane Caddell. His family were farmers.
On August 28, 1859, in Cherokee County, Texas, Joseph marries Sarah Elizabeth "Betty" Parker. Together they had seven children and they were Mary Eugene, Sarah Alice, James, Jennie, Albert, Irene Ethel and Helena Caddell. Like his family before, Joseph also farmed.
In 1864, Joseph enlists as a Private in the Confederate Army, in Texas, Company F, 2nd Cavalry Regiment. He serves his state well and returns to his family and begins to farm, once again.
In 1896, Joseph's dear wife passed away and he is now a widower. In 1906, 65 years old, Joseph's health had declined to where he could no longer support himself. At this time and with the help of his doctor, he applied for the Confederate Pension for soldiers who served their country. At first it was denied as the muster roll was missing his name and considered a deserter. His brother-in-law, Alexander Hamilton Parker and Alexander's brother Willis Houston Parker, had both served in Company F, 2nd Cavalry Regiment along side of Joseph. After Alexander and Willis answered questions concerning Joseph's where abouts during the missing muster rolls, they were both able to sign affidavits to the fact that Joseph was indeed there and serving their country together. On May 17, 1906, Waco, Texas, County Judge J. W. Baker signed the order that Joseph Brooks Caddell was entitled to the pension provided for by the Confederate Pension Law of Texas and therefore approved.
At the age of 67, January, 8, 1908, Joseph Brooks Caddell passed away.
