Linda, there is so much conflicting information on Joshua and his wife on Ancestry.com , that it's going to be hard for you to find out the truth. I tried all my resources, without any luck, to find any documents that would help. Perhaps someone with a paid subscription to Ancestry will see your message, and try to help. My free subscription will not let me go very far, and I can't afford the paid site. My "Allen" family is about as messed up as your's, but I keep trying to find records. I've been searching for several years, but can't get back very far. I've made several hundred post on this forum and others in this site. The later information has been good, but the older information is really hard. Sorry that I can't be more help, but keep trying, and keep posting. You may want to post with the states and counties as well as the names, as a lot of my help has come from there. Good luck...............Dave.
