I am trying to find information on Joel C. Stebbins. According to the 1820 census, he lived in Danube, Herkimer County, NY and is listed just above Gaylord Colvin. He later married Gaylord's sister Ruth. I have a lot of information on Joel after 1820, but am looking for information before that time (who his parents were, where he was born). The seminal book on the Stebbins family by Greenlee had no information that helped. Joel and his family moved in the late 1820s with the Colvins to Illinois, and he later lived in Iowa and Minnesota.
He died in the mid 1880's, so he was probably in his early 20's at the time of the 1820 census. Thank you for any clues or information.
