He was a Granville pioneer, perhaps the first settler there. He was born in 1836 in Portugal to a Scottish father, Portuguese mother. In some sort of squabble with angry Musqueam natives, he was saved by Chief Ki-ap-i-lan-o, and subsequently married the chief’s granddaughter, Khaat-tin-aht. Archivist Major Matthews described it as the first formal marriage ceremony on the site of the present city of Vancouver. Joe and Khaat-tin-aht set up a saloon at what is now the north foot of Abbott Street, competition for Gassy Jack Deighton. Because there were other "Portuguese Joes" in early Vancouver, Matthews dubbed him No. 1.
