Herb Meyer, Correspondence, Date: Fri, 14 Nov 2003
 
"I have been searching, with little success, for information about a 'Comfort Joy' who appeared in west Kentucky and southeast Illinois about 1800.
 
"A few intriguing bits can be found: this individual lived about 1800 (or a little earlier) in Livingston county KY (area of Smithland, Eddyville, etc); his name appears on a petition dated 1805 regarding land claims close to Fort Massac on the Ohio River (Illinois); at about that same time, he is found operating a ferry on the Big Muddy River in southern Illinois; and soon after that, he is said to have been killed in an accident on his way to haul salt from a saline.
 
"I believe this Joy was associated in same way with a Hazel family which lived in Livingston county about 1798-1805 and about 1805 forward in Pope county IL. I have noted a marriage between a Hazel woman and an unnamed Joy in Virginia, in the latter 1700s.
 
"The given name Comfort, as you know, appears in the Joy family in Vermont and elsewhere, but I can't find any potential connection to the Comfort in KY/IL."

11. Benjamin JOY

Sources: archive rec of father
2) Joy Gen by Bourne 929.273 J84l, p.80. Says died young. Supplement gives descendants, p. 68, but these are from a different Benjamin Joy. 1-30-01 e-mail from Colleen Nielson" corrects this "... problem with one of the children of "Uncle" David Joy. It concerns his son, Benjamin. From your notes on Benjamin you found him in a supplement to the "Joy Genealogy". It is true that there is a Benjamin Joy who married Sophie Bridge and his descendents are listed there. This is the work of Sally Guadagni of Newport Center, Vermont. I know her well and she gave me the information there which concerns her family. This Benjamin Joy, born abt 1765 in Killingly CT, is the son of Ephraim and Elizabeth (Pool) Joy and Ephraim is Sally's ancestor [possibly the one who died 12 Jun 1824 in Montgomery Co, Vermont and was buried there]. This is the Benjamin who married Sophie Bridge. "Uncle" David's son Benjamin, did, indeed, die early. He is given as born 17 Feb 1767 in "The Joy Genealoy", pg 80." Thank you, Colleen!
