Birth: Sep. 22, 1775

Death: Dec. 29, 1852
Litchfield
Kennebec County

When they came to Litchfield in 1824 Joshia was the head of the family and the man of affairs. He was born at North Berwick, September 22, 1775, and on April 9, 1798 - the year after his father deeded him the homestead - he married Sarah Quint, of Berwick, who was fours years his junior.

They sold out there in January, 1825, to Nathaniel Walker, and on June 13, 1825, purchased of William Robinson a farm in Litchfield where Job. F. Morrell now lives.

They subsequently resided with their son, Hiram, but when their younger son, Ebenezer, bought the Isaac Shurtleff farm, north of Barnabas Springer's, they made their home there until Joshia's death, December 29, 1852 (His grave stone at Litchfield Corner says 1853, but the stone is wrong.).

His widow, after living alone for several years, resided until her death, November 23, 1868, with her daughter, Mrs. Barnabas Springer.

The five children of Josiah and Sarah Q. Morrell were born at the ancestral home in North Berwick, and excepting the oldest son, Arch, who was previously married, came with them to Litchfield, where they all became heads of substantial families, as notice in the four succeeding paragraphs.
