John I have the document you are referring to plus a few more. Joshua was a lawyer according to my documents. The documents I have say he was living in Charleston South Carolina in 1821 but he came from Washington County North Carolina. His land was sold to Joshua B Davenport and Issac Bateman in Washington County on 17th of November 1851. After Joshua died the family must have moved to Macon county Alabama. I have probate papers from there giving guardianship of the younger children to Andrew and Zennida dated July 1851. This document is in bad shape but if you would like a copy let me know.
