      Assuming that Joseph is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being 20 and 30 years of age, he would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that the free white female listed in Joseph's household in the 1830 census as then being under 5 years of age was a daughter of Joseph and/or his wife, she would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that Joseph is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being 30 and 40 years of age, he would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1840 census.
