JOSEPH W. CALVERT, farmer, post-office Greenville, was born in Cortland County, N. Y., February 21, 1819, and is a son of Nathaniel Calvert, a native of Ireland, who immigrated to New York State in boyhood, where he grew up and married Betsy E. Gamble. They reared a large family, and in the fall of 1820 settled in Mercer County, afterward removing into Crawford County, Penn., where they spent the balance of their lives. The following children survive: Mary Ann, widow of William Mossman; James, Joseph W., Martha, widow of Aaron Kale, and William. Our subject grew up in Crawford County, and there married Mary, daughter of John Andrews, a pioneer of that county. In the fall of 1850 he purchased his present homestead in West Salem Township, upon which he has since resided. Six children are the fruits of his marriage: Elizabeth, wife of James McNeilly; Margaret, wife of James McBroom; John N., Joseph A., Mary and Emma. Mr. Calvert and wife are members of the Presbyterian Church, and politically he is a stanch Republican. He began life comparatively poor, but is to-day one of the prosperous farmers of West Salem Township.
