While living in Hawkins Co TN, Joseph was killed by Indians while on a trip [perhaps hunting]. He was buried in a mass grave near Wallen's Creek KY, along with others also killed.

Spouse 1) Milly Jones"

Please Note: As can be seen from the DAR record above, Joseph's surname is spelled WALLEN. At different times in history, the name of Wallen is recorded with variations such as Wallin and Walling. The passenger list of the ship "Anne", dated Jul 1623, lists Ralph's surname as "Wallen". To avoid confusion, my ancestors descending from Ralph (1590-1633), will be named as same.

Thanks to Dana for the nice photo.
