The Back/Bach Book was written many years ago. Many researchers have been disappointed that the data has not been subsequently corrected or additions made to these volumes as researchers have requested.
Another researcher, Tilden 'Sam' Bach has since written a very well researched set of books about the Back and Robertson lines (and their related families).
I descend from Joseph and Elizabeth through their son John Back (of Breathitt Co KY) who married Catherine Robertson (my 5G Grandparents).
My husband descends from John's brother Henry who married Susannah Maggard (d/o Samuel and Rebecca Robertson Maggard)

The Back/Bach book combined the family of Joseph and Elizabeth and those of Henry and Elizabeth together in doing their genealogy. Note, they had a problem explaining this because Henry and Aaron were both born in 1785. Both families had a son named John with Joseph's John born in 1774 and Henry's John born in 1776 The Back/Back book identified only one.
In 1773 when Joseph was 28, he married Elizabeth HOFFMAN, F, daughter of Nichalaus HOFFMAN, M & Barbara Elizabeth KOESTNERIN, F. married early Spring. Born in 1755 in near Swift Run Gap in Augusta Co., VA. Born on Jul 13, 1746. gravestone date. Elizabeth died in 1826; she was 71.
Elizabeth was orphaned in 1770 and became a ward of the Augusta Co. Court. Shortly thereafter she was apprenticed to Samuel Maggard.”
Elizabeth is buried in the Maggard Cemetery, in Oven Fork, Ky. She was adopted into the Maggard family when she was 15. They taught her to be a spinster.
They had the following children:
2 i. John, M (1774-1854) m Catherine Robertson
