Searching for descendents of Joseph Faris born 22 Nov 1793 in Delaware to James Faris and Elizabeth Moody died 1878 in KY and Elizabeth Williams 1794-1877. Joseph and Elizabeth married 1818 in KY.

They had the following children:
Mary Jane, James Lawrence, Ambrose S., Elizabeth, Sarah Ann, Nancy, Joseph Henry Jr., and Daniel T.

They lived in Fleming County KY

Joseph was the eldest son and I have much information about his siblings who remained in Delaware or who moved to Philadelphia PA, and one family that migrated to California.

I am very interested to know why Joseph migrated to KY when he was the eldest son and probably would have inherited over 600 acres of land in Delaware when his father died in 1826.
