The 1840 census for Gallia County, Ohio shows a Joel Canterbury and a Joseph Canterbury living next door to each other. Both are from Virginia. Joel is age 60-70. Joseph is age 30-40.
I have been told that "Isaac Joel & Sarah Canterbury" are the parents of Joseph Canterbury.... Does anyone have proof of this? (or know anything more about the parents?)
And is the "Joel" on the 1840 Gallia census the same "Isaac Joel" said to be Joseph's father?
I have been told Joseph comes from Giles, VA. And there is this:
1830 census of Giles, VA lists a Joel, Joseph, Joseph, and James Canterbury.
1820 census of Giles, VA lists a Joel, Joseph, and Jane Canterbury.
1810 census of Giles, VA lists a Joel and Joseph Canterbury.
Does anyone know who the other Joseph is??
Also, I have also been told that Joseph married Nancy Bowen. Does anyone have proof of this?
And, there is a Levi Canterbury in Lawrence Co & Gallia Co around the same time as Joel & Joseph. Levi appears to have come from Monroe County, VA. Does anyone know the connection (if any) between Joel, Joseph and Levi?
If you have any info, I'd appreciate it.
