71. Joel MABRY40 was born between 1750 and 60 in Lunenburg County, Virginia. He died after 1830 at the age of 80 in Franklin County, Georgia.

No census records are available in the places Joel Mabry lived and he left no will that has been found. Known sons are Walter, Patrick, William, James Thomas, and Mark Seth. They were likely other children. No proof was offered for the daughter Elizabeth shown in the Mabry book.

Walter, Patrick, James T. & Mark appear on the tax rolls of Franklin Co GA. There is a Phillip and Thomas W. Mabry who could also be sons. Walter first appears in 1803; Patrick in 1805; Mark (Seth) in 1808; James T. in 1811. Phillip was there in 1803 and Thomas W. in 1805. Phillip & wife, Fanny, sold land 23 Oct 1809 in Franklin Co and no further record of them has been found. William was in Amite Co MS by 1811, and Ouachita Parish LA by 1820. In 1818, Thomas W. Mabry acquired land in Elbert Co where he is found in the census from 1820 through 1840; he is probably the father of a younger Thomas W. Mabry in the 1850 census of Clarke Co GA. Ephraim Mabry first appears on the tax rolls of Franklin Co in 1805 and is the youngest brother of Joel. The family of James Thomas Mabry have the tradition that he had brothers William, Walter, and Joel and that this Joel [Jr.] settled on the Choctawhatchee River near Eufuala AL but no records have been found for him.
