Joseph Mapes was born around 1785. Currently, there is no evidence connecting this Joseph Mapes to the Southold Mapes family.

In the 1900 Federal Census, Joseph's son Hiram Milton Mapes stated that his father was born in Vermont.  However, he also stated in the
1880 Federal Census that his father was born in Canada.  Hiram was living in Ionia County, Michigan when the Civil War started. 
He served his country on the Union side and after the war settled in Mucatine County, Iowa.
