    Notes 
    • From: Joe Travis
      W.L. provides some confusing and conflicting information about Joseph [you'll need to read this carefully - one piece at a time, to follow]. I'll refer to three sets of notes: notes on Joseph's father, Jedediah [pg. 71]; notes on Joseph and his second wife, Susannah [pg. 71]; and notes at the end of the section on the family of Jedediah [pg. 72].

      [in notes on Jedediah]
      "It is evident that his [Jedediah's] first wife was the mother of the older children of this family, but his second or third wife [Sarah or Thankful Goodspeed] was the mother of the younger children, including Lois and Joseph."

      [in notes on Joseph and Susannah]
      Joseph "m. (2) before 1840 in Ira, Vermont, Mrs. Susannah (Gallup) Goodspeed, widow of Gideon Goodspeed . since Gideon was a brother of Sarah and Thankful Goodspeed, he was a half-brother of this Joseph Irish born in 1778 in Dutchess County, New York"

      [in notes at the end of the section]
      "Joseph was probably born in Rhode Island in 1764 or 1765" and "How they [Joseph and Gideon] came to be half-brothers has not been learned."

      Again From: Joe Travis
      So W.L. reports Joseph born in different years and different places and while I can't comment on the business of Joseph and Gideon being "half-brothers" - if Gideon was brother to Joseph's mother [either Sarah or Thankful], then Gideon would be the maternal uncle to this Joseph and Susannah (as Gideon's widow) would be his own maternal 'aunt-in-law' (so to speak). See notes on Susannah and Gideon. I'm hoping that the 'Corrections and Additions' to W.L.'s book (by Olding) clears some of this up - but I don't have a copy.
