Notes
General:
This is not proved. If the Bickford's of Meredith in US Census 1800, 1810 and 1830 are all of the family of John and Phebe (and it appears all but Joseph may be connected) than this Joseph would he part of the family.
The only census in which he appears in Meredith is 1830 (there is no surviving 1820 census) and shows his age as 26-44, putting his birth 1766-1784). In the household he had:
2 males under 10
3 females under 10
Himself and his spouse, both 26-44

This could also account for the male 10-15 in the 1800 household of John and Phebe Bickford in Epsom.

The 'Annals of Meredith' has not shown any additional information on the family. Possibly the Joseph Bickford later of Alton. NH.

The Joseph of Alton is age 50-59 living with perhaps a daughter (female in household 20-30)
