Corporal William I. JOY
William Joy was the first husband of Jacob Mullen and Mary High Williams ELDRIDGE's first child, Elizabeth.
William and Elizabeth had 2 boys: Roy/Ray, born 1873 (no date)in Davenport, Scott, IA; died 17 February 1875 in Valley City, IA (now Pleasant Valley, Scott County). He is buried on his grandparent's lot in Oakdale.
The other son was Maynard born 5 Feb 1889 in Davenport. He died Mar 1968 in Bedford, Middlesex, MA. No burial info.
I do believe William is one of my lost and found.
The person who posted on Find-a-Grave only wrote what was on the marker.
He was born in 1820, no location or date, and died 24 Sept 1876.
He was from Company A, 9th Iowa Cavalry, and there is a rusted star which is unreadable in the picture.
The only thing I can think of now is to 'google' the 9th Iowa and see what I get.
Anyone know of such a Civil War database???
