Joel was placed as a son thru early censuses (1810-1830) where children are not named but recorded by age.He could have been born as early as 1807 or as late as 1814. He marr c1840 and could have had a previous marr. I do not know if he had a will but do know he owned land in Magoffin Co KY. He had 9 known children. No need to answer if this doesn't sound like your man.
