Joel Root was supercargo on the sealing ship Huron and author of a journal of his voyage around the world (1802-1806) on that ship. The port of New Haven from which he sailed was a frequent point of departure for sealing voyages. The first mariner to make a trip to sealing grounds in the Southern Pacific was Captain Daniel Greene of New Haven in 1790. One version of Joel Roots journey dated 1838 was dictated to Dr. Emile Gardette, his granddaughters husband, while he was visiting in Philadelphia for several months under the care of a Dr. McClellan. While this account was interesting, it was written in the 3rd person, and lacked the immediacy of Roots own memoir.
Biography,Among Roots earliest American ancestors who settled in Connecticut were Capt. William Curtis (1618-1702) from Essex, England, and John Porter (1623-1688) and Mary Stanley (1631-1688) from Kent, England. On his fathers side of the family his earliest American ancestors were John Root (1608-1684) from Northamptonshire, England, and Mary Francis Kilbourne (1619-1697) from Cambridge, England. Roots mother, Lucy Curtis Root, died when he was two, and when he was six, his father, Col. Elisha Root (1737–1776), died of dysentery while serving in the Revolutionary War army in West Chester, Connecticut. Joel and his two sisters inherited their fathers farm of one hundred twenty acres and the good country house in which they lived. He was then adopted and raised by his paternal grandfather, Jonathan Root (1707–1794), namesake of the Jonathan Root House in Southington, Connecticut, now listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Jonathan Root was the son of Timothy Root and Margaret Seymour. Some early members of the Root family were members of the Connecticut Landing Holding Company. Deed Number 13 of the Connecticut Land Company was held by Ephraim Root.When Joel was almost sixteen, upon the death of his aged grandfather, he and his two sisters, Hannah and Lucy, were left to make their own way in the world. He determined that he would go to college and prepared himself for that goal. He succeeded in entering Yale in about a year. However, he stayed only until the end of his sophomore year, leaving with an honorable dismissal.At eighteen Root married Eleanor Strong, daughter of Revolutionary War soldier Col. John Strong of Torrington, Connecticut, and Mercy Newell Strong. Eleanors father John Strong (1610-1699) was an early New England colonist and Puritan leader.Joel Root then became a farmer for five years, afterward moving to Southington, Connecticut, where he began a dry goods business while also, at intervals, dealing in real estate. By 1800 he was the father of seven daughters and decided to move to New Haven, Connecticut, where he thought they would get a better education. The seven daughters of Joel and Eleanor Root were Olivia Ann Root (1788-1827), Lucy Curtis Root (1790-1821), Eliza Maria Root (1792-1886), Maude Eleanor Paris Root (1794-1873), Jeanette Francis Root (1796-1891), Charlotte Antoinette Root (1798-1888), and Susan Augusta Root (1800-1846). The last born and eighth daughter, Julia Root, died as an infant in 1807. Because he was aware of the vaccine recently invented by Edward Jenner (1749–1823) for smallpox, a disease then epidemic in the United States of America, Root insisted that his seven daughters be inoculated before he left for his journey around the world.
