JOSEPH FAWCETT was born in Washington County, Pennsylvania in 1773 to Thomas and Isabella Fawcett. He moved with his family to what is now East Liverpool, Columbiana County, Ohio in 1795. There he married Esther White (1778-1829). Their 8 children were Elizabeth Fawcett (1801-1834), Robert B. Fawcett (1803-?), James Fawcett (1809-1834), Nancy Fawcett (1809-1834), Thomas Fawcett (1813-?), Julia A. Fawcett (1815-1878; Humrickhouse), Joseph Fawcett, Jr. (1817- ), and Daniel W. Fawcett (1820-?). Joseph Fawcett built the first grist mill in the county just below East Liverpool on Carpenter's Run, at the foot of a hill on the New Lisbon Road (McCord 1905:52, 112, 113). He also built the first sawmill in the township at Jethro (Barth 1926:175-176). Joseph Fawcett also operated the first carding mill (McCord 1905:113). Thomas, Joseph, and Benjamin Fawcett shared a household (7a) in 1820 in St. Clair (Census [Bell 1986]). Joseph Fawcett died in 1825 (O'Dell 1977:1188).
