Research Notes

I believe that the record I added in the sources is a reference for his marriage to Anna Avery. The record shows him marrying Hannah Pritchet, and Hannah was often another name for "Anna". Josiah was around 50 years old when they married.Fetterly-28 23:43, 21 November 2020 (UTC)Fetterly-28.
