Joseph was the son of George & Amanda (Jarred) Lieurance. He was born in Illinois, but grew up in Mahaska County, Iowa.

His siblings were:
Cynthia L Lieurance McCama Witt (1846–1931)
Catharine Lieurance (1848–before 1860)
Andrew Jackson Lieurance (1852–1939)
Ezra W Lieurance (1858–1870)
Amanda A. Lieurance (1865–?)
Delbert Calvin Lieurance (1872–1939)

On July 31, 1881, he was united in marriage to Katherine M. Ewing. Presumably they were married in Mahaska County, Iowa, as they both resided there. Shortly after their marriage, they left Iowa and moved to Lincoln, Stafford County, Kansas and then to Neosho Falls, Woodson County, Kansas, where Joseph's parents and family were now residing. After a few years, they left for what is now the Oklahoma Panhandle, where Katherine's mother and siblings were also settling. However, Joseph and Katherine's time in Oklahoma was short lived and they returned to Neosho Falls.

Joseph and Katherine's children were:
Hugh T Lieurance (1882–1894)
Ethyl Lena Lieurance Shorb (1884–1961)
Howard George Lieurance (1886–1957)
Cynthia A. Lieurance Crawford (1889–1965)
Grace Waitsell Lieurance Green Leighton (1893–1959)
Clarence J. Lieurance (1898–1918)- Who died serving his country in France during World War I

They had two other children who died in infancy.
