A professional history consultant contacted me about Joseph Andrews. It seems that a Joseph Andrews at age 42 was in Missouri as a Mormon. He was a member of the Navoo Legion. The missing link is between Georgia and Missouri. Cousin Rick Allen reminded me that the Mormons sent missionaries to the South at that period. Andrews could have joined them then and moved on west to Missouri.
