    • One person in Joseph's 1840 household was identified as a miner. Since he was the only male over the age of 18, he is the probable candidate. This is during the time of Georgia's gold rush, which was centered in Lumpkin County, so he certainly would have been a gold miner. As an aside, most households on the same census page had at least one person engaged in mining.
