Joseph Dorsett Bedle was born at Middletown Point (now Matawan), in the county of Monmouth, N.J., January 5, 1831. He is the older of two sons of Thomas I. Bedle and Hannah Dorsett, both of Matawan. The ancestors of his parents were of old Monmouth County families, those on the maternal side extending back for a century and a half. Four or five generations of the Dorsetts lie buried in the Dorsett burying-ground, on the Dorsett farm owned by John Stilwell, about three miles from Matawan. From this family came the Hon. Garret Dorsett Wall, the well-known statesman and United States Senator from New Jersey. The father of Joseph D. Bedle early became identified with the prosperity and growth of Middletown Point.
