  • Notes 
    • Joel was born in Baden and accompanied his parents to Hay Township when a young child. He married Katherine Erb, daughter of Daniel Erb and Margaret Gingerich. The Erbs had also moved to Hay Township. Since none of their children's births are reported in the Canadian records, Joel and Katherine as well as Katherine's parents probably left for Holt County, Nebraska, after their marriage in 1874. Katherine died in 1888, following the birth of her sixth child, Margaret. She was buried at the time of a terrible blizzard. Joel did not marry again, and the children were raised by their grandparents or other relatives.
