Notes for JOSEPH STEWART WESTBERRY:
The 1846 year of birth is incorrect.
Josiah and Joseph are the same person.
Josiah shows in the 1860 census as being 6 years old and is shown as Joseph in the 1870 census as being 15 years old.
1900 Census, Appling Co, Georgia.

His death certificate lists his father as Furman Westberry and mother as Lucy Bennett. The informant was his son, John Brantley Westberry. Buried at Piney Grove Cemetery, Wayne County, Georgia.
Joseph reputedly had him a "spare" family in Florida, location and names unknown to me. Supposedly he visted them about once a year. Perhaps some of the Westberrys that we cannot trace are his offspring.
