Joseph Hand

Although Joseph Hand of Henry County, Georgia had a lot in common with the Joseph Hand in East Hampton, New York, they are NOT the same man. A professional genealogist that I hired found Joseph Hand of East Hampton living in Southampton, NY while Joseph Hand (who would later marry Kizziah ___ ________ and live in Henry County) in North Carolina.

So many family trees combined the two men and I am certain I won’t be popular for breaking the news that there were TWO Joseph Hands who were born the same year and fought in the Revolutionary War. Besides, the Joseph Hand of East Hampton was a weaver by profession and not a farmer!
