This is the only  Trackwell  family in US records.  Joshua appears in land and tax records for Greenbrier and Monroe Counties VA in the 1790s and in the diary of his neighbour/patron? William Vawter.  He married  Anna Ballard  and moved west to Logan and Cabell Counties, becoming a boatman on the Kanawha and Ohio Rivers, an occupation followed by his sons.  In 1837 his purchase of land in Liberty Township occurred in the context of a substantial Ballard family migration from VA, including that of his brother-in-law  John C "Pedlar John" Ballard  to Liberty Township and Anna's uncle,  Elijah Ballard, to adjacent Orange Township, Rush County.  Trackwell/Ensminger Cemetery was established on Joshua's land, while the now-derelict Ballard Cemetery was established on Elijah's land and the later Vienna Church and Cemetery on the county line by Ballard descendants and relations.  Although Joshua and Anna had 11 children, only their son,  John  and their daughter,  Nancy Ensminger  remained in the area.  The present Trackwells in Indianapolis descend from Joshua's son  James  in Clay County.
