Joseph Herring was enumerated in the census of 1860 in Decatur Co., GA, in the household of Hanson William Herring. Joseph Herring was enumerated in the census of 1870 in Decatur Co., GA, in the household of Hanson William Herring.

In the will of Hanson William Herring, dated 19 Dec 1879 in Decatur Co., GA, Joseph Herring, his son, was named as an heir.4 He was enumerated in the census of 1880 in Decatur Co., GA, in the household of Amy Caroline Anders.5
