He is most likely a son or close relation of Warren.
He and his children live near Warren's children, and names are repeated.
Note Warren had a son John almost the right age who vanishes after 1850.
Bondsman for his marriage was Walter E Rigsbee. The only Walter old enough at the time was this one, who was about the same age.

married in Wake Co NC
both buried in Roycroft-Summerlin family cemetery, Durham Co NC (with incorrect birth dates on their stones)

A transcription of the cemetery with added information says that Joseph's father was Warren.

He was a farmer.
