Married to Samantha Ruffcorn on 7-3-1876 in Harrison County, IA. Joseph Seth Oviatt was born in Grant County, Wisconsin Territory.

His father, Seth Oviatt, Jr., originally from Braceville, Trumbull County, OH, apparently died shortly before his birth. At this time, the date and place of his death are unknown. However, records of Seth Oviatt, Sr.
indicate Seth Oviatt, Jr. most likely died in Grant County, Wisconsin Territory.

His mother, Temperance (Crum) Oviatt, appears to have died prior to 1853. Again, the date, time and location of her death are unknown.

It is known that Joseph Seth Oviatt and his two older sisters, Roxa Ann (Oviatt) Benedict and Sarah Jane (Oviatt) Russell are living in Braceville, Trumbull County, OH under the guardianship of their uncle, Uriah N. Oviatt in 1853.

Census records indicate Joseph Seth Oviatt was living in the home of his grandmother, Lucretia (Johnson) Oviatt in 1860.

Joseph and Samantha also had three children that died very young: Clarie Rosette Oviatt (July 26, 1879 - April 18, 1880); Sheridan Oviatt (December 9, 1890 - January 18, 1891); and Temperance Ann Martha Oviatt (December 29, 1900 - January 10, 1901). It is believed that at least two of the children are buried in Ruffcorn Cemetery in unmarked graves, however, there is no known documentation for this at this time.
