Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 14, 1789
Windham County
Vermont, USA
Death: Aug. 27, 1850
Windham County
Vermont, USA

If he was born in 1788, he would have been born before his parents were married, which was September 21, 1788 in Putney, Vermont. The marriage of Comforts parents was recorded in Vital Records of Putney to the Year 1900 Marriages and Marriage Intentions by Ken Stevens.

It states the following, p. 190:
Obediah Joy Jr. and Content Hovey, both of P.l, int. Sept. 21, 1788.

Comfort was married twice. His first wife was Martha "Patty" Redway/Radway. His second wife was Harriet Archer. There is no record of the second marriage, but proof that the marriage existed is in the probate record for Comfort wherein she gets her downer for herself and for Harriet Marie/Hattie/Hattie Marie as she was variously known throughout her life. Harriet Archer Joy age 20, appears in the 1850 census with Comfort age 61 and Marie age 2. Harriet Archer, after the death of Comfort, and after she receives her dower, moves to Westminster, Windham, Vermont and dies in the same year as Comfort. Her death is recorded in the town records, but her burial location is unknown. The cause of her death remains a mystery as the town record did not record the cause, just her name and the date.
