Joseph is documented enlisting in military service on Feb. 11, 1859 at Philadelphia, PA - 16 days prior to his 19th birthday. Henceforth, his movement is traceable on a nearly year-to-year (and often month-to-month) basis until his death in 1920.
Joseph married Suzan Lamar on Apr. 04, 1866 in Dallas Co., MO after discharge from the 29th Iowa Infantry at New Orleans, LA in 1865.
