Who is he joining in West Virginia? (bad eyesight :oops: )
I suspect he had some relation already present, perhaps a brother, as I found a Tony, same location, close in age to Joseph.

You can see below that it said "Cousin Pasquale..." and "NY" but then written in a different hand is "T??? W Va". I think it's Tony.
