  • Notes 
    • In October, 1807, Joshua bought 200 acres of land from his father. This land was situated in what is now Inglisville and therefore he had the distinction of being one of the first settlers of what was then known as "Beals Mountain". Joshua and Rebecca had two sons and seven daughters. Two of their grandsons (sons of Isaac) emigrated to Blain, Maine and their descendants still live there and in Massachusetts. Their other son, Stephen, and his descendants lived in the Middleton (Annapolis Co.) area.
