Birth: 1844
Anderson County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Apr. 8, 1874

Julia Delilah Webb first married Joseph Carpenter. He died 08 Apr 1874 when he was only 30 years old.

From his obituary which appeared in the 9 Apr 1874 issue of "The Anderson Intelligencer:"

The grave has just closed over the mortal remains of Mr. Joseph W. Carpenter, an estimable and honorable young man, whose days of anguish and suffering were ended at the residence of his mother-in-law, Mrs. Martha Webb, in this town on Monday evening last.

Mr. Carpenter has been suffering from pulmonary disease for several years and for the space of many months has lingered between life and death where the brittle thread of existence seemed almost severed. His case excited the sympathies of the entire community, while his patient resignation and cheerful acquiescence, mingled with a trusting, unshaken faith in the Saviour of mankind, was the highest admiration from every one who came into his sick chamber.

Mr. Carpenter was buried at the Baptist Church in this town on Tuesday afternoon. The religious services were conducted by Rev. L. M. Ayer and Rev. W. W. Mood, whose truthful and touching references to the sad event were most impressive upon the large audience assembled in respect to the deceased.

[note: His remains were reinterred in 1903 when Julia Delilah Webb Carpenter Daniels had the remains of several of her relatives moved to a large family plot she had purchased in the Old Silver Brook cemetery when her husband, Capt. John William Daniels, died in 1901. She had a large stone monument erected in memory of her parents and to mark that family plot].
