Info vague on where Joe came from in Virginia. Is said he first emigrated to Edgecombe County, NC and then on to Pitt County. Research proved he was not the Joseph married to Mary Fennel nor Frances Hatcher. Probable sons: John b. 1748 and Joe Jr. John founded Jacksontown in the Ayden-Grifton area of Pitt County. Any background info on Joseph would be appreciated.
