First names are good! Michael Patrick Joyce was my father's grandfather. He (MPJ) was also the brother of those women in Zanesville,Ohio. I can remember three of them, Nora, Delia,and Sade.
There were two others but I don't have any recollection of their names.
Of the five sisters, Nora was the only one who married and I'm putting two and two together to figure that she was Judge Robert Merry's mother, the others were his aunt and MPJ was his uncle.
Robert Merry and my father, Fred Fugazzi,were 2nd cousins. I think your great uncle fits in there somewhere but this is the best I can do so far. I would prefer to correspond with you in a more private fashion. My e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
. Let's use that. Thanks.
