  • Name Joseph Hooper 
    Born 24 Dec 1780  Bridgewater, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 3, 4, 5
    • There is a note in the Bridgewater list of births for
      "Jerusha, w. Joseph Hooper, Apr 19, 1783" that is cited from a private record group.
    Gender Male 
    Census 1830  Bridgewater, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts Find all individuals with events at this location  [6
    • There are three Joseph Hoopers and a John Hooper in Bridgewater in 1830. I believe that means dad, son, uncle, and grandson.

      Enumeration (Joseph Hooper 2nd): 0010001-0001001
      Enumeration (John Hooper): 00001001-000000001
      Enumeration (Joseph Hooper): 000010001-00001
      Enumeration (Joseph Hooper Jr): 000001-100001

      So, I am not certain which of these 3 is Joseph, but one I believe is.
    Died Bef 1840  [7
    • Jerusha is listed as a head of household in the 1840 census, implying that she is widowed. By 1850, she is listed as a widow.

  • Notes 
    • He was an ironworker, a gunsmith by trade. In early life he shipped on a whaling vessel and was wrecked on the Sandwich Islands, where his skill in ironwork saved his life. But he was guarded whenever a vessel was in port so that he could not escape for quite a length of time. He at length succeeded
      in getting away and returning home. The time and place of his death are not known to his descendants.
