John established a tannery which he operated until he died. Joseph's mother remarried, and by age 13, Joseph had been bound out by his stepfather, George Swisher. It was a difficult childhood. At age 19, Joseph began working as a farm laborer, paid by the month. He met Delilah, daughter of his employer, Peter Starr. After his marriage in 1845 to Delilah, the couple lived in a log house, with chinks stopped up with mud. Next, Joseph worked in a carding mill, purchased 60 acres for $350, and began farming. See Bio for land purchases. In 1884 they moved to their home with an artesian well that flowed constantly through the milk house, and water tanks for the livestock, all on 27 acres, plus another 300 acres.
