The census records tell a story of Joseph Sedgwick. In 1850 he was a "Boat Man," in 1860 a "Merchant" and in 1870 "State Representative." He served as representative from Greene County to the Pennsylvania State Legislature. I have been told that his will was probated in Greene County, Pennsylvania

There is a Mathew Sedgwick in Greene County in the 1810 Census PA Greene County. Is he the father of this Joseph Sedgwick?
