Biography

Joseph was born 07 May 1882 in Brasher, St Lawrence County, New York, and lived with his parents, Amos and Ida (Lacomb) Mousaw/Mosseau, in St Lawrence County throughout his childhood. [1]

Joseph first married Ida Mae Lashomb in Nassau, New York, on 18 Nov 1903. [2]. They had five children: Hazel Lillian (1905), Francis (1907), Bernard Amos (1910), Marion Mildred (1912) and Ruth Ellen (1921). Ida died in 1924 in Canton, New York, and was buried at Saint Marys Cemetery there. [3]

Joseph registered for the World War I Draft on 12 Sep 1918. At that time, he was married to his first wife, Ida (Lashomb) Mousaw and was employed as a teamster for Byron H Rogers in Canton, New York. Physically, he was described as of medium height and medium build, with brown hair and brown eyes.[4]

Joseph second married Cora Ann (Lashomb) Farnsworth (his first wife's widowed older sister) in Potsdam, St Lawrence County, New York, on 11 Nov 1927, [5] by Father T J Mahoney with his son Bernard Mousaw and her daughter Irene Farnsworth serving as witnesses. They must have divorced, for she did not die until 1960, but they were not together at the time of the 1940 Census, when Joseph was living with his married daughter, Hazel (Mousaw) Fuller in Potsdam, with marital status indicated "single."

He also registered for the World War II Draft in Potsdam, New York, on 25 Apr 1942 when he was 59 years old. He was approximately 5 foot 8 inches tall and weighed 150 pounds. He had gray eyes, brown hair and was light complexioned , with a scar on his forehead. He was employed as a brasher at the Racket River Paper Company.

Joseph died 26 May 1972 in Potsdam, New York, and is buried at Saint Marys Cemetery there beside his first wife. [6] His memorial at Findagrave includes his obituary.
