I'm interested in a Joseph HEATH, who I believe was born about 1773 in New Chester, NH; and died about 1863 in ME. He lived variously in Gilead and in Bethel in Oxford Co., ME. His wife was Betsy BENNETT, and his children included Dorothy, Tilton, Hannah, Josiah, Timothy Jane, Sarah, Mary,
Joseph, and Perley.

If this is your family, I'd love to hear from you. My ultimate objective is to learn whether this Joseph HEATH was the brother of my ancestor, John HEATH, b. possibly in Hampstead, NH; married Rachel KENTFIELD in
1785 in Bridgewater, NH, and died after 1850 in Brownville, ME. (I have V. Giorgi's Bartholomew Heath book...I believe she errs regarding "my" John Heath.)
