They moved to Belmont County in 1814 (possibly from PA) and located "on the place about a mile from Barnesville where the toll gate is situated". Daughter Elizabeth m.

His wife, Susannah d. 15 Nov 1836. In 1837, Josiah purchased three parcels of land in Monroe County, one on Aug. 21 and two on Nov. 7. All three patents are recorded by "Jos. S.
