Joshua was born to David Comley, Sr., and Amelia Jane Hurt in Garrard or Washington County. On 14 Aug 1879 he married his first wife, Esther Jane Webb, by whom he had five children: Lily, William, Ulysses, Anna Pearl and Lee Roy. Shortly after the birth of Lee Roy, Joshua became involved with a young Cherokee Indian girl by the name of Sarah Rebecca Tapp. He was a blacksmith and had probably been called to shoe horses or fix machinery at the Shaker-run Pleasant Hill where Rebecca and her family were then living. Joshua abandoned Eliza and the children and ran off with Sarah, settling in Anderson, Indiana. About 1892 they married and had eight children: Bertha, Pearl, Edna, Bessie, Arthur, Helen, Ruth and Eugene. Joshua was a blacksmith and he operated his own shop in Anderson. Joshua died of gramo disease at the age of 52.
Joshua was my 2nd great grandfather.
