Died: c. 1798

Joseph Few was a master builder nominated to The Carpenters' Company by William Williams and elected 17 April 1775, although he never signed the Articles. He was an "encourager" of Abraham Swan, The British Architect (Philadelphia: R. Bell for J. Norman, 1775). It is possible that this Joseph Few served during the Revolution as Regimental Quartermaster of the 4th Continental Artillery, 1 April 1777 through 31 October 1777.
