A Word about the Joyce Family Crest:

The Coat of Arms, the color green means Hope and Loyalty in Love, and red means warrior, martyr, and military strength.

The central division of the coat of arms signifies the Military Belt, and represents honor.

The Heraldic Bird is an Eagle, and in Ireland was regarded as one of the "demons of the air", very powerful.

The helmet means "wise defense"
 
 

The Descendants of Michael Joyce & Catherine Finnerty

1.  Michael Joyce Sr., son of Pat Joyce and Rose Maden, was born on 2 Oct 1829 in Fraemstown1, County Galway, Ireland, died on 5 or 6 Oct 19142 in Redfield, Spink co., SD, and was buried on 7 Oct 1914 in St. Bernard's Cemetery, Redfield, Spink co., SD. The cause of his death was cerebral hemorrhage.   His Headstone.  His death certificate.  His obituary.

Michael married Catherine Finnerty, daughter of John Finnerty and Bridget Keone, in 1851 in Clinton, Worcester co., MA. Catherine was born about 9 Apr 1831 in Barnaculla, Tynagh Parish, County Galway, Ireland, was christened on 9 Apr 1831, died on 5 Dec 1924 in Redfield, Spink co., SD, and was buried on 9 Dec 1924 in St. Bernard's Cemetery, Redfield, Spink co., SD.  Her Obituary.  Her Headstone.

Michael and Catherine's new headstone
 

Michael and Catherine lived in Clinton, Massachusetts after their marriage, where Michael worked as a laborer.  The exact nature of his work is unknown, but many of the Irish immigrants tended to work in the textile mills and factories, manufacturing rugs and other goods.  Life was not easy for the Irish immigrants, who descended upon towns and cities in huge numbers; poverty was rampant, and discrimination was blatant.  It was common that “Help Wanted” signs in store windows also said, “Irish Need Not Apply.”  Business owners, forgetting that they too were immigrants at one point in time, felt that the Irish were drunkards, and were taking jobs away from the “locals”.  It was common to have several Irish families living together in cramped quarters, with all adults in the household having jobs, and one woman staying behind to care for all of the children.  Michael Joyce, however, must have been able to provide for his own family better than most, as he and Catherine had their own household, and Catherine did not have to hold down a job outside of it.

Sometime between 1855 and 1857, Michael moved his family to a farm near Berlin, in Fond du Lac county, Wisconsin.  About 1867, they moved again, purchasing a 96 acre farm near Ripon, Wisconsin, in Springvale township, Section 6, where they remained for the next 17 years (map shows Michael Joyce farm with a red X).  The boys in the family worked in the lumber camps and probably on the home farm as well.  The family attended St. Mary's Church, near their home.

In 1884, the family moved westward to Dakota Territory, where they lived in a sod shanty and burned cow chips as heating fuel.   By 1900, Michael and Catherine were living in the city of Redfield.
