Hi kandijean2000, We are related. Joseph is my 2nd great granduncle. His brother George W. Elwell is my 2nd g-grandfather. Their father George E. Elwell is my 3rd g-grandfather. I haven't done much on Joseph and his family yet but I can give you the info that I have so far. Most of the work I've done is on George W's family because that's where I fit in. Hope to hear back from you soon.
