Unfortunately, the Joyce family came from County Galway where the name is quite common. According to family lore, my g-grandfather Christopher was from Clifden, but I can't verify that. His death certificate and marriage request both say only Ireland. I know that his father was Thomas and his mother was Mary Cline, both confirmed on the death certificate and marriage license, as well as those of his brother. Some of the family may also be from Mayo. My g-grandparents were married after emigrating and she was from County Clare (Bridget Halloran), and also difficult to trace. My g-g-grandparents were born in the 1830's in either Mayo or Galway.
