John Janson Joyce

1FindaGrave.com, https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/96605760. "It is with deep feeling of sorrow that we chronicle the death of John J. Joyce, a pioneer of the west. Mr. Joyce was born in Galveston Texas, Aug 14, 1855 and was married to Valera Rucker at Mobeetie, Texas and came to Roger Mills County in April 1892, and made his home here ever since, until the death angel came last Friday, Aug 11, 1916. If he had lived three more days he would have been 61 years of age. Mr. Joyce has been in bad health ever since the writer first knew him, which was about 24 years ago and during the past few years, he has been an invalid. In the early 90s he filed on a homestead on Sandstone southeast of town and has made this his home ever since his coming to Oklahoma. He bore the reputation of being honest and upright in all of his business dealings, and believed in treating his fellow man in a way that he would like to be treated. A short funeral ceremony was conducted at his home by Mr. Rhoten, after which the body was conducted to the cemetery where the woodmen of the world performed the last rites to a brother.

He leaves a widow, three sons and a daughter to mourn his loss. We join the bereaved in their sorrows.
