Fetters from Zoar Colony

Does anyone have any information on a Joseph Fetters born in Tuscarawas County, Ohio on 10-8-1819? He married a Julia A. Keiser in Montgomery County, Dayton, Ohio and they moved to Germantown, Indiana when my ggrandfather was two years old. His name was John Fetters.
Julia A. Keiser was born in Berk County, Pa. on 5-22-1822.
I think that Joseph was the son of a John Fetters(Vetters) who came over with the Zoarites in August, 1817.
Michael Vetters is listed as having 5 children but only 4 are mentioned on the Wurttenburg Index. John is mentioned as 17 years old along with the rest of the family on an indentured service log after arrival.
From my grandmother, I learned that Joseph's father ran away from the Zorite Colony. I can find no other information.
