He purchased land from Samuel Levis and Thomas Brassey, settling next door to Samuel on his southern boundary in Springfield, PA. Joseph was known as a quiet husbandman (farmer) for almost 50 years. He died in Pennsylvania on 15 Jun 1741.
Needs Development: This profile and the profile of his father need development against the project's checklist and then need review/approval by the Project to badge Joseph's trails. ~ Thiessen-117 23:05, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
See Base Camp for more information about identified Magna Carta trails and their status. See the project's glossary for project-specific terms, such as a "badged trail".
