  • Notes 
    • He was known by the cognomen of "Corporal Joe". He may have had an active part in the American Revolution on 19 Apr 1775, but because of his age (88) it would have been on that day only.

      One reference gives his birthdate as 16 Aug 1685. R. S. Munroe gives his death date as 1787. Ebb says he died on 12 Feb 1737 but that is unlikely since he supposedly participated in the Revolutionary War.
