Stuart,I wonder who was looking for this fellow as I checked it recently - maybe on the australian forum,?
On the colonial families database which is on the tassie archives it states the Joseph b. 1801 and another Joseph b. 1817 as marrying Mary KEMP so this is rather confusing and may be incorrect The two ages listed when he married fit and the 2nd one he was aged 66 years Men can father children up into their nineties you know????
My husbands great grandfather married 2nd time at 72 and had two more children before he died from exhaustion His first wife had 14 so anything is possible
I will try and find who else was researching this family
