Biographical or historical data
Joseph Draper married Biddy Jackson on February 5, 1819, in Wayne County, Indiana. Both Joseph and Biddy were born in North Carolina. They had at least three sons: Joseph Jr., born August 2, 1822, in Wayne County, died July 26, 1905, in Henry County; Thomas I., born about 1831; and Oliver, born about 1832. In 1850, the federal census listed the family in Greensboro, Henry County, Indiana, with Joseph, 54; Biddy, 52; Thomas, 19, and Oliver, 18. Ten years later, only Thomas, age 29, was living with his parents. Joseph was a farmer. Biddy could not write her name and made a mark on the documents which required her signature. She died on September 5, 1866. Joseph died February 13, 1885.
