Joseph Creviston, Sr. PA OH IN

I am seeking information on Joseph Creviston, Sr. who was born 1797 in Bedford County, PA. After he fought in the War of 1812 with his father, William Creviston, Joseph and William moved from PA to Knox County, Ohio. Later, they moved to Grant County, Indiana.

Joseph did marry Sarah Kepler in Ohio and after living in Grant County, Indiana Joseph and his family moved to Huntington County, Indiana, settling there for good. He had eleven children, ten of whom lived to adulthood, three sons and eight daughters. There are many Creviston marriages in in the pre-1850 Marriage Records of Grant County, Indiana. Joseph Creviston, Sr. died August 16, 1875 in Huntington County, Indiana.

I do not know who the mother of Joseph Creviston Sr. is and I would like very much to find out. I strongly believe (99.9%) that Joseph Creviston Sr. is the father of my great-great-great-great grandmother Catharine Creviston who married Joseph Harper in Grant County, Indiana.

Joseph Creviston's most researched child appears to be Joseph Creviston Jr. who was a Justice of the Peace for many years in Huntington County, IN.

If anyone can tell me anything about this family, it would highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
