Joseph Wait
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1778
Death: Nov. 5, 1845

The tombstone says "69 Years". I have a birth date for Joseph of April 24, 1778 that comes from "family records" copied from a paper found in a box that contained other papers once in the possession of William Wait (son of Henry, grandson of Oliver, born 1805). April 24, 1777 seems to fit better with being nearly 69 years. However, if Joseph really was 69 years of age, then his birth year is 1776. And August 23, 1776 is when his sister Mary (aka 'Polly') was born.
Will show 1778 despite info above.

research by others indicates that:
Joseph was, with Hannah Fulmer, the father of Alba Wait (who married Lucas Smith). With Lydia Way, he fathered William (b. 1812), Hannah (b. 1816), and David (b. 1818). And with Mary 'Polly' Way, he fathered George W. Wait (b.1829) and Oliver Hazard Wait (b.1823).

I have not looked deeply into records to verify the above information about Joseph, his wives and children. Please contact me if you have supporting evidence, and especially if that evidence indicates inaccuracies in this info.
