1. Thomas Owen Joy died in 1912.

T. Owen Joy d. on 4/27/1912 after a lingering illness, aged 56 years.
Buried in Joy Chapel Cemetery. (The Enterprise, 5/4/1912 and 6/1/1912).

By his first wife, Elizabeth S. Dean, he had one child, Lela May Joy, b.
1883 who married Robert Ford Dean. Elizabeth S. Dean died 1883-1885. At
the time of the 1900 census, Lela was living with her uncle, William H.
Dean.

His second wife's name was Estelle Symphronia "Essie" Wood. No record of
her after 1910.

2. I have his name as James Edwin F. Joy because at the time of the 1860
census, he was called James, but after that time I've only seen it as Edwin
F. Besides Georgeanna Clarke, he was also married to Ann Amanda Dean, widow
on July 26, 1908. I haven't tracked her down yet.

3. Lydia Ann Joy was born November 18, 1859.

4. Everett McClellan Joy. Nothing additional. By his first wife, Mary J.
Pilkerton, he had: James Everett Joy, b. 1889, but that's a tenative
placement. My note: 1900, 6th Dist., with father. 1910, 6th Dist., with
father, laborer-saw and grist mill. If his age is correct, he was the son
of Mary J. Pilkerton, if he was a year older he was the son of Florence
Gatton. No children by Florence Ada Gatton. He had six children by Ann
Maria Dean.

5. I have this child's name as Effie Ellis

6. John H. Joy. Judy told me that he was born 6/3/1867 and died 8/27/1867.

7. Ella Matilda. Nothing additional.

United

in

area.
> About 1851, he converted James Joy & family from Catholicism to Methodism.
