Joseph6 WIXSON Sr. (child of Solomon, #448);[607],[608] born 25 Jan 1779 at Dutchess Co., New York, United States of America;[609] baptized 25 Apr 1847 at First Baptist Church of Pickering & Whitchurch, Canada West (Ontario), British North America (Canada); as an adult, by his brother Joshua;[610] married Deborah Townsend (see #225), daughter of Gerardus Townsend and Elizabeth Bennet, 20 May 1798 at Dutchess Co., New York, United States of America;[611] died 14 Feb 1855 at Pickering Twp., Ontario Co., Canada West (Ontario), British North America (Canada), at age 76;[400],[612],[613] buried after 14 Feb 1855 at Claremont Baptist Church Yard, Claremont, Ontario Co., Canada West (Ontario), British North America (Canada), where his stone was inscribed "The unbroken forest met my view / The fruitful fields I leave to you / I love the habitation of thy house and the place where thy glory dwells / Psalm 26, 8."[614]

He and Deborah Townsend emigrated in 1799 to York (Toronto), York Co., Upper Canada (Ontario), British North America (Canada); with two other couples: Deborah's siblings Abraham Townsend and his wife Statira Keeney, and Elizabeth and her husband Anthony Hendrick. It has been said the Joseph was a member of the Berzee Colony, and helped open up the Danforth Road in York town.[615],[616] He and Deborah Townsend lived in Mar 1799 at York (Toronto), York Co., Upper Canada (Ontario), British North America (Canada); and the family count was 2 males, 1 female, and may indicate son Randal (b. 1799) was present.[617] He and Deborah Townsend lived in Mar 1801 at Scarborough Twp., York Co., Upper Canada (Ontario), British North America (Canada); where family count remained 2 males, 1 female.[617] He and Deborah Townsend lived in 1802 at Scarborough Twp., York Co., Upper Canada (Ontario), British North America (Canada); where the family count was 1 male, 1 woman, 1 age 16, 1 female (4 people).[618] On 7 Dec 1802, Joseph received a free grant of land in Pickering Township, lot 18 in the 9th Concession. Two weeks before, Abraham Townsend received his grant for lot 20.[619],[620] In 1803, Joseph and Deborah settled in Pickering Twp.[621] In March of 1811, Joseph was appointed Poundkeeper, and brother-in-law was appointed Collector and Pathmaster (a poundkeeper maintains an animal pound).[622],[623] In 1813, Joseph purchased the Eastern adjoining property, lot 17, Con. 9.[624] He bought property from Janet Elliot in 1813 at Con. 9, lot 17, Pickering Twp., Ontario Co., Upper Canada (Ontario), British North America (Canada).[625] Deborah's brother Abraham and his family left Pickering Twp. in 1815 and returned to the States.[626] He received his land by government grant once he fulfilled his settlement obligations in Jun 1816 at Con. 9, lot 18, Pickering Twp., Ontario Co., Upper Canada (Ontario), British North America (Canada).[627] It was said that Joseph operated Pickering Twp.'s only grist mill, about a mile East of his property from the 1830's (probably on Duffin's Creek).[628] Joseph was registered in the Militia in 1828/29 with other family members in 3rd Company, 2nd Regiment of East York.[629] He was appointed one of three commissioners in 1836; his duties were much the same as a councillor in 1836.[630] Joseph was very active in the political union movement prior to the Rebellion of 1837, and went with Peter Mathews to Montgomery's Tavern. Mathews was later hung for his involvement.[631] He lived in 1837 at Con. 9, lot 17, Pickering Twp., Ontario Co., Upper Canada (Ontario), British North America (Canada).[413] On 15 Dec 1837, a warrant was issued for Joseph's arrest "and all others that has taken up arms against Her Majestys Government in the present Rebellion" of 5-7 Dec 1837. He was not arrested until later, and did appear before a grand jury for alleged Patriot activities in 1838, but the charge was dismissed.[632] From 1839 to 1854, Joseph was a Town Warden. Town meetings were then held in either Andrew Thompson's tavern on the fifth Concession, or the Central Hotel in Brougham.[633] Long after his death, in the village of Claremont, whose northern half was carved out of Joseph's original grant, are two streets which cross each other in the middle of his old property: one named Joseph St., the other named Wixson St.[634]
