Actually, Lafayette had 9 full and two half siblings. The first 10 children were born of James' first wife Lydia Stearns (that would be the ones you listed - although I believe it's not "Joe B." but "James B." - the mistake seems to have come from a misreading of the 1860 census record, where "Jas" looks like "Joe" if you're not used to looking for name abbreviations). James also had two children with his second wife, Sarah Jane (I believe her maiden name was Haven or Havens) - Lydia (Liddy/Libby) Elizabeth, and Bert Isaiah (my gr-grandfather), who were both born in IN. These would be Lafayette's half siblings, or Leslie Burton's aunt & uncle. I have lots more on Bert's line if anyone is interested.
