This is Terry. I'm replying on my brother, Craig's other email address.
Remember when I came up to KC to visit and attend the funeral? I also brought you some pictures of your great-grandfather Barney.
The picture you are refering to is the one with your grandfather John and my great-grandfather William.
Hope all is well with you. If you would like, you can email me at Terry.Boyne@williams.com
Hi, Barbara. My name is Don Boyne and my grandfather was William Boyne. My father was named Harold William and was born in Monet, MO June 4,1913 and raised in Pierce City. Both my grandfather and father were Frisco railroaders. Grandad was an engineer and dad was a conductor when he retired. Both worked on the east end from Tulsa to Monet. Later, just before my father retired they extended his run to Springfield. Dad used to spend his summers in Pierce City with his uncle John. They both loved horses and dad used his summers to train for football. He really enjoyed his time there in MO.
I am 63, (will be 64 in October) and married a girl from our home parish here in Sapulpa - Sacred Heart. Terry is our oldest son, born in 1961. Our second son, Jon was born in 62 and our third son, Craid in 1963. Our fourth son was born in 1965. All live here is Sapulpa. What brought William here originally was the opportunity to work on the railroad. Sapulpa was the western railhead for the Frisco until the yard was moved to West Tulsa - I think in the '20s.
My grandfather died when I was but 5 years old, so I have few memories of him. All the kids called him 'Dad'. His wife was Albertina Wagner - a full blood German and a very devout Catholic. Some of my earlies memories of church are going with her and some of dad's sisters. Dad had five sisters - Ruth, Mary Agnes, Jean, Louise and Joy. Mary Agnes died at a young age. I never knew her. I knew the others very well. He also had a brother, Luis that died at age 45 in Oklahoma City.
I have an older brother Bob that lives in Ft. Gibson OK, and a younger sister Nancy that died in 1986 of cancer.

We are all interested in our geneology. I visited the Boyne valley in Ireland last year, but didn't make any positive contacts with the family.
Let's stay in touch..
