Randolph and Harrison Counties, WV
Perry and Franklin Counties, OH

My initial interest in the Joyces was in learning of the connection with the Downey family of Perry and Franklin Counties, Ohio. Many of the Joyces owned or ran bottling factories in the midwest, including several 7-UP factories. At some point in the early 1900s John R. Downey joined William Joyce in bottling ventures in Columbus, OH and married a Joyce: Adrienne M. (Mary).

It is clear that the Joyces of Perry Co., OH have connections with the WV Joyces.

I am making every effort to cite sources accurately...but did not do so when I first began this database in 1999. Where I have not cited a source - the information may be good but not cited...or just a guess. Often you can tell which is the case by whether or not there is other factual information documented with that person or not.
