Joel may have learned gunsmithing from his cousin Phillip LeFevre, son
of Isaac LeFevre and Catherine Ferree.  It was believed that knowing
they were going to live in the wilderness of the New World, Isaac
trained in gunsmithing while in Germany.  When Joel reached maturity,
he received a land grant from his father and set up a rifle making
shop.  During the American Revolution, he made gun barrels or guns or
both. He extended his works, employed a larger force of men and turned
guns out for the Government at the rate of 30-40 per week. Gunlocks
were said to have been imported by a German.  The family continued to
speak German for several generations.
