This person was created on 16 November 2010 through the import of Morton Family Tree.ged.
I updated the place of birth, the 1850 census shows Jospehs parents William and Mariah living in Southampton Twp., Bedford County, the family didn't move to Fulton County, Pennsylvania until sometime between 1850 and 1860.
I updated the death date and place of death per Jospehs Death Certificate and Tombstone.
Also, Matilda Layton is listed here as Josephs spouse, that is incorrect. Josephs spouse was Matilda Talitha (Tilly) Smith.
There were no sources listed here in Josephs original profile for any of the information given.

It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Joseph:
