BirthJul 29, 1728Lancaster, Worcester Co., MA, USA, FWH: May 6
MarriageRockingham, Windham Co., VT, USA, First Church
ProblemPossibility that Elisabeth Garfield was Joshua Sr's wife, not Joshua Jr. Only JWH and MLM give her as wife of Joshua Jr.
Nancy Wilson: My husband is descended from Joshua Jr's sister Vashti Houghton. In doing her line I noticed that her father, Joshua Sr, was widowed relatively early in his life but, unlike most men of the time, there was no mention of a second marriage. His surviving children were certainly not infants but, nonetheless, he was left with children under the age of 10 and one would expect him to marry if only to provide care for these children. One reason for men not marrying, I have found, is that they 'take off' on a spirited adventure, ie go West, strike out for the gold fields, whatever. However, Joshua Sr seems to have stayed very local as evidenced by the filing of his will in Worcester. So, we are left with the inference that he remained a widower for 35- 40 years and died the widower of Elizabeth Bennett.

Meanwhile we appear to have his son marrying, Elisabeth Garfield/Gaffel, in 1746 (about 5 yrs into his father's widowhood) having no children, and this wife dying soon enough/young enough to allow him to marry a 2nd time and have a family.

Is it all possible? Absolutely. But barring proof positive, we must hold out the possibility that Joshua Sr re-married, to Elisabeth Garfield, after 5 yrs or so of being a widower.
CJV: Lancaster and Shrewsbury (just Joshua, no Sr or Jr) VRs give marriage of Joshua (not Joshua Jr) Houghton and Elizabeth Garfield/Gaffell
