Hi I am looking for anyone that is searching for JOYS in Newfoundland, Bonavista area.
My great grandmother was Margaret Ann Joy born in 1887 in Open Hall, Newfoundland. She married William Joseph Long (born 1881 in Open Hall) in about 1913. They had 5 children all in Open Hall before moving down to Massachusetts.
Margaret Ann Joy was the daughter of John Joy (born abt 1840's) and Bridget Murphy (born abt. the same). John and Bridget were married on Jan 19 1873 in Open Hall, and their witnesses were a James Joy and a Elizabeth Joy.
I know that John and Bridget had at least one son (name I do not know) and a girl that they called Lizzied (could be an elizabeth, not sure).
I will be very thankful for ANY help I get with the JOY family, as I am really stuck.
