Descendants

Seemingly unknown outside the biblical records, Jokshan appears to have settled with his descendants in northern Arabia and Anatolia blending with the Indo-European Hittites, while others seem to have moved south into Arabia Felix (Yemen) blending into the Joktanite Arab tribes of the region.
