Possibly of Cherokee heritage. Born about 1850 in Louisville, Jefferson, Kentucky Died in Durrant, OK. Lived in TX with his wives...some of his children were born in Bell, Corvel, and Hayes counties in the 1880-1900's. Was said to have been married three times: ADAH RENSIMER, ADAH EMMA WOODY, and SARAH MILLER. Was said to have had 28 children between the three wives.
His father was also a JOSEPH and his mother was named possibly ANN.
I am hoping someone can help shed some light on him for me. He is my brickwall!
