October 1750, he married Maria Daniels at the Dutch church in Schenectady. They were married with a certificate from Albany. In May 1757, their son James was christened by Rev. Ogilvie in Albany. In 1753, the couple witnessed the baptism of his brother's son in Albany.
In 1756, his name (Josiah Wells) appeared on a list of Albany householders taken by the British army.
His name seems to be absent from the community-based record for the years following the French and Indian War. Perhaps he was the same-named individual who was a property holder and militiaman in Coxsackie in 1766.
We seek information of the remainder of the life of the Albany Joseph Wells and his family.
Sources: The life of Joseph Wells is CAP biography number 6856. This sketch is derived chiefly from family and community-based resources.
[ A number of same-named individuals are at risk for this subject's lifetime. They include a landholder and militiaman in Catskill during the 1760s and a pioneer settler of Cambridge in Washington County; Albany context of Joseph Welles and Henry Livingston; ]
