The Patten and Dinsmore families intermarried a great deal in Norridgewock, one being James Dinsmore and Deborah Patten in 1802. I only looked through 1830, but didn't find Joseph and any Betsey. There was a Joseph much later on, but not to a Dinsmore. He married Joanna Harlow in 1815. Did you know that the "Honorable Samuel Patten" is well-known in Bedford history? He was a judge, surveyor and diarist (one who used no punctuation), and his diary paints a wonderful picture of daily life. They had oodles of children. I would love to find a list of all his children and see if Capt. Joseph was one of them. According to Louise Coburn, he was; that is, unless his father Samuel was the son of the Judge. Kathleen
