On 1860 US census he is listed as glass blower but he woked as a laborer in US. His son Antoine who came to US with his parents is listed as glassblower but did not follow that in US. Joseph's father Nicolas (1761-1834)is listed as master glass maker
Mary Angelica Schwerer was the daughter of of Pierre Schwerer and Marie Madelaine Burgun.
Joseph was 31 years old when he came to the US but I can find nothing on him in France except his marriage.
