Joslin, E. A., is the fourth descendan in a direct line to become owner of the Joslin homestead. His great grandfather, Potter Joslin, was the first ancestor that settled at Eagle Bridge.

The latter was a very influential citizen whose advice was sought by young and old; he was much engaged in the settlement of estates and was nine years in succession commissioner of highways. The present estate consists of 126 acres, but the paternal ancestors originally owned a large tract of land here. Mr. Joslin makes a specialty of fine merino sheep. In 1878 he married Minerva A. Kipp of Pittstosvn. They have two children: Clarence W., aged seventeen, and Sylvia, aged sixteen. In politics Mr. Joslin is a Republican; he attends the Baptist church.
