Joseph and Nancy lived near the Ohio River in Campbell County, Kentucky. He reportedly worked on a riverboat and was gone from home a lot.

The county courthouse in Newport, Kentucky is four blocks from "Riverboat Row".
The other courthouse in Campbell County is in Alexandria and is not far from where Joseph and Nancy attended church.
