After Susanna's death, Joseph married Mary Ann Thompson on Nov. 2, 1876, also in Scioto County. Soon after, the family moved to Indiana and settled on a farm near Windfall. Joseph and Mary were the parents of nine children: Thomas H., of Bluffton, Indiana, Lilly/Lillie, (wife of William Bailey Pendergrass), of Tipton Co., Indiana, Edward/Edmund Monroe, of Nevada, and Bert Gifford, of Sharpsville, Indiana, whom survived their mother; also, Jennie F., (wife of Everet Newman Hershman), James, Willie, and 2 others, also believed to have been deceased prior to Mary's death.
