From these records, I conjecture that the three sons of Sylvanus Brimhall named Joseph with various birth and death dates are one in the same. He lived from c. 1787 to c. 1854. A son of Sylvanus would not have been born in Illinois, since Sylvanus appeared to live and die in Massachusetts. Joseph certainly lived beyond 1815, because of the 1818 Illinois land grant and beyond 1850 because of the census.
