  • Notes 

    • There is no real evidence for Joseph to be the son of Thomas and Nancy Densman. He is the right age to take the place of a male child on the 1830 census of Thomas and his family. Joseph always stated that his father was from Pennsylvania. There is no evidence of Joseph on the 1850 census. But I suspect that he left for the 1849 gold rush to California. And when that did not pan out he moved to Oregon where he shows up on the 1853, 1854, and 1858 state census records. He shows up on the 1860 census for Jacksonville, Jackson County, Oregon census. And he is still there in 1870 but he is now married. The census is faded, but I believe that I have it correct. By 1880 he is living in Douglas County, but still a miner but he is not longer married either through divorce or death. His son is no longer with him and I suspect he was dead. In 1893 he again married this time to Gustine Nixon and in 1900 they are living in Perdue, Douglas. In 1910 they are living in Logan County, Arkansas; the home of Gustine.

      Like his brother, Thomas he was a miner. And in one of the census records (1900?) Thomas is visiting Joseph in Oregon and shows up on the census.
