Joseph YORK is the son of Jeremiah YORK and his wife Elizabeth “Leah” CLARK of North Carolina.
Joseph, age 25, married Rhoda MORRIS, age 24, on 04 Feb 1828 in Clay County, Kentucky.

They were the parents of seven children:
1. William J YORK
2. Henry M. YORK
3. Jeremiah YORK
4. Esther YORK
5. Sarah YORK
6. Francis M. YORK
7. Joseph W. YORK

It appears from the 1850 US Census of Wayland, Henry County, Iowa, that Joseph died before the 1850 Census was recorded. The 1840 Census is unreadable. The last child, Joseph W York, was born on 02 Jan 1848. This suggests the child was named after his deceased father. Therefore it is proposed Joseph York died in 1847 thus explaining why he is missing from the 1850 Census.
