Joshua was ther first white settler in London Twp. Can. The last name was also spelled APPLEGARTT. He m. #1 Miss Abigail Hughson/ Hueston (or Abby HENSEN) and may have had three children with her but nothing is known further. He then m. #2 Elizabeth “Betsy” TIFFANY, b. 1787, Albany, NY, in 1811, {she is the eldest daughter of Silvester Tiffany (1759-1811) and his first wife the former Mrs.Frances (DAVIS) HOPKINS had come from Pennsylvania, supposedly, from Dutch extraction. She is the daugther of Willima Davis of East Greenwich, N.Y. Sylvester TIFFANYs second wife was Elizabeth Ralston of Keen, N.H.}
