Joseph French, brother of William above, as stated in his Will, was a Shopkeeper, called Joseph French of the Landing, was probably born 1714 - 1721 timeframe. He married Hannah Horn; license dated Jan 1749. Hannah Horn, daughter of the late Simon Horn and Sarah Olden, was born about 1723 in Piscataway, Middlesex County, New Jersey. Joseph and Hannah lived at Raritan Landing but apparently left about 1765. It has not been proven that this Joseph French is the father of Lafford French (see below); however, circumstantial evidence supports this relationship.
Joseph French is first documented in the southwestern part of North Carolina, Oct 1769, when he signs a petition. In Nov 1770 it is noted on the Field Return of the Regiment of Militia for Anson County that Lieut. Joseph French removed out of the county. A South Carolina land survey dated Jan 1773 mentions Joseph French land on branch of Pacolet. It is probable that Joseph had died before 1790. It is believed that this Joseph is the father of the documented French family living in the Northwest corner of South Carolina in the 1770's. It may be his widow who is shown as a female, age 45 and up, in the Lafford French household, 1800 US Census.
Documented South Carolina French Family Siblings are William, Joseph, Lafford, Sarah, Mary and Simon.
