      P. 302, Part 3, St. Lawrence County, New York by Gates Curtis, states: “Joseph Irish was a farmer in Vermont, who was married twice, having nine children by each marriage.”


      From: History and Map of Danby IRISH, JOSEPH, son of Abel Irish, settled on a portion of the farm now owned by Nelson Colvin. He married for his second wife Catherine Colvin. He raised a family of eleven children: Job, Samuel, Elizabeth Ruth, Huldah, m. Benajah Colvin; Freelove, Elsie, Esther. m. Samuel Harnden; David, Anna and Joseph. Elizabeth m. Thomas Aldrich, and Joseph moved to Oh.

      From: Joe Travis
      Yes, I see that Joseph is identified above as 'son of Abel Irish', but W. L. Irish shows ancestry as: Joseph6 (this Joseph), David5, Jesse4, Jonathan3, John2, John1.

      Also: Joe Travis
      Have new information (10/25/2000) that suggests many of Joseph's children shown as born to 2nd wife, Catherine Colvin, were actually children of 1st wife, Alice Potter. See notes on Joseph's daughter, Elsie.
