Ancestral Line
It is unknown where Joseph was born although it was generally believed that Joseph was born in the US.  Most Mapes in the US are descendants of Thomas Mapes (born in England) and Sarah Purrier.   This Mapes clan settled in Southold, Long Island, NY.  Joseph's son Hiram lists Vermont in the 1900 Federal Census.  However, in the 1880 Federal Census Hiram lists his birth place as Canada.
I have previously reported that "the" Joseph Mapes that came to Markham, Ontrario (33 years old in 1819) is the same Joseph Mapes that was born October 27, 1785 to John Mapes and Mary Johns of Gloucester, NJ.  This has been found to be inaccurate.   Joe Boyle is the Mapes family historian and he has been helping me piece together this history.

Joseph MAPES was born about 1785 possibly in Vermont. He died sometime after 1860 in Markham, York Co, ONT, CAN. He married Anna STOVER on Jan 27, 1806 in St. James Church, Toronto, Ontario (pictured above). He and his family mostly stayed in the township of Markham in the Ontario County of York. To this day, there are still many MAPES in York County, Ontario which is in close proximity to Toronto. Most members of the family were farmers and carpenters.

Anna STOVER's death notice in Canadian Christian Advocates: Anna MAPES wife of Joseph MAPES died at the residence of her son, William, on the 3rd concession of Markham, Twp, Nov. 1, 1857 in her 71st year. Mrs. MAPES was the mother of 12 children. Anna is buried in Headford Church, Markham Twp., Canada


Joseph Mapes came to Markham in 1805 having resided in the US beforehand. His petition on Mar 24, 1819 read as follows...

To his excellency Sir Perigrine Waitland H.C.B
