If born around 1689, Joshua is probably the son of John's second wife, not his first (Christon, bp 1634). See information and sources on this page on my speculation as to John's second wife.

R. Bolling Batte's research has Joshua as the first child (and John b c1665 as 6th). John (b c1665, m Mary Batte), was the son Christon (bp 1634). See RBB online chart and narrative. The narrative shows Joshua's son Joshua as husband of Mary Short (see info on first page of this JSTOR article).

Joshua is 18 degrees from Kevin Bacon, 18 degrees from AJ Jacobs, 48 degrees from Lisa Kudrow, 28 degrees from Kurt Vonnegut and 17 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II of the Commonwealth Realms on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
