Joel House, Cabarrus County, N.C.
My impression of Joel House: first I noticed this one may have been born about 1819 at least. He is listed in the 1840 census as free. By the time 1850 and 1860 he is listed as a carpenter laborer in the home of a farmer named John Faggart, along with another black named Andrew Reid. In 1860, Joel has an estate of 125.00. Joseph
