    information from Dr. Ward Oliver by email on April 19, 2009
    "Joseph moved to Charlotte from King Wm in 1779 (not sure that he was born there, but as you said, you could have been from three different counties without ever having moved if in the right spot). I assume Joseph Sr to have been born ca 1725, based on the ages of his children. The youngest, William, came of age in (if I recall correctly) 1786 so was b. ca 1765. The sons were in order John, Edward, Joseph and William. The daughter Mary was either the 1st or 2nd child."
