Here is the info that I have from my web site:

Joseph Fagin, born Sept 22, 1774, Burlington County, New Jersey. Joseph died at age 81, in 1855. He is buried in the Pierce Twp. Cem., Clermont, Ohio. Joseph Fagin married Rachel Gray, daughter of Archibald Gray, a neighboring homesteader, also from Pennsylvania. Rachel Gray was born around 1783/1784 in Pennsylvania and died 18 Sep 1844. Rachel Gray-Fagin is buried in the Pierce Twp. Cem., Clermont, Ohio. Archibald Gray (Rachel's father) was born in 1757 in Pennsylvania and died around 1819 in Clermont, Ohio. Rachel Gray-Fagin was the mother of all of Joseph Faginís children. From History of Clermont 1880:

"Some time before 1800, Archibald Gray settled two miles below New Richmond, on the farm which is yet known by the family name, where he deceased before 1825. His daughters married Joseph Fagin, John Scott, Aaron Parker, and John Winans. Of his sons, Hiram died on the homestead; John, Henry and Vincent removed to the West; James H., lives in New Richmond, and Aaron in Pierce."

After Rachel Gray-Fagin's death, in 1844, Joseph married Catherine Durham. In 1787, Joseph, along with his brother, Abner, were two of 8 electors from Clermont County in the first Assembly of the Northwest Territory. In 1803, when Ohio became a state, Joseph Fagin was a member of the Grand Jury. He was a judge in Clermont County, Ohio in 1804. He ran a general store, "Joseph Fagin and Sons", in New Richmond, Ohio. This store traded merchandise and produce to early river boat traffic between Cincinnati and New Orleans. Joseph Fagin farmed as well as owning a tannery and a sawmill. Joseph Fagin died June 3, 1855,and is buried with his wife, Rachel (1784-1844) in Ohio at the Pierce Township Cemetery on 10 Mile Creek.
