JOYNT/JOINT Military Records

If you can help me place the families of these persons or have additional info to share I would appreciate it.
 Thanks, Cathy JOYNT Labath


The pay list for the the N.M.Militia shows in 1793 Thomas Joynt and
Christopher Joynt,
and again in 1798 when the regiment was reformed, all
members of this regiment were selected for their height not under 5
feet10 inches, smartness, activity and general good conduct, the
regiment was formed in Castlebar in 1793 and disbanded the second time
in Ballina ,the records for the Militia are at the Kew military centre
London and I believe at the Castlebar library.

Schenectady Soldiers in the Civil War: One hundred seventy-seventh Infantry
This information has been taken from Chapter XXV, pp. 402-403 of Schenectady
County, New York: Its History to the Close of the Nineteenth Century, by
Austin A. Yates (1902)

Joynt, William
Enlisted October, 1862; served through.

The 177th was formerly the Tenth Regiment New York State National Guard of
the city of Albany. It was enlisted in October, 1862, for nine months, but
it was called upon to serve within two weeks of the year, and those who did
serve, served most heroically. They were ordered at once to the Department
of the Gulf and served in Louisiana. While at Baton Rouge the record shows
that men were dying by scores from zymotic disease, as diphtheria, typhoid
fever and the like. Men fled from the regiment by scores, and of the
thirty-five men who enlisted from Schenectady, sixteen deserted. The roll of
honor of those who served through or died in service we give as follows:

JOYNT, Lt William Donovan Joynt, Australian Victoria Cross Winner
8th Australian Inf Bn 23 Aug 1918
On 23 Aug 1918 at Herleville Wood, near Chuignes, Peronne, France, Lt. Joynt took cahrge when his company commander had been killed. When the leading battalion had been demoralized by heavy casualties, he rushed forward and reorganized the remnants of the battalion. Having discovered that heavy fire on the flanks was causing delay and casualties, he led a frontal bayonet attack on the wood, thus saving a critical situation. Later, at Plateau Wood, after severe hand -to-hand fighting, he turned a stubborn defence into an abject surrender. He was subsequently badly wounded by a shell.

Commemorative Information
Cemetery:  LIJSSENTHOEK MILITARY CEMETERY, Poperinge, West-Vlaanderen,
Grave Reference/
Panel Number:  XXI. C. 13.

Location:  Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery is located 11.5 kilometres west of
Ieper town centre, on the Boescheepseweg, a road leading from the N308
connecting Ieper to Poperinge. From Ieper town centre the Poperingseweg
(N308) is reached via Elverdingsestraat, then over two small roundabouts in
the J. Capronstraat. The Poperingseweg is a continuation of the J.
Capronstraat and begins after a prominent railway level crossing. On
reaching Poperinge, the N308 joins the left hand turning onto the R33,
Poperinge ring road. The R33 ring continues to the left hand junction with
the N38 Frans- Vlaanderenweg. 800 metres along the N38 lies the left hand
turning onto Lenestraat. The next immediate right hand turning leads onto
Boescheepseweg. The cemetery itself is located 1.5 kilometres along
Boescheepseweg on the right hand side of the road. From Calais, take the
motorway A16 signposted Dunkerque/Lille. At Dunkerque take the motorway
signposted Lille/Ypres, the A25. Leave the motorway at Junction 13, the
village of Steenvoorde. Follow the D948/N38 signposted Ieper/Poperinge.
After approximately 8-10 kilometres Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery will be
signposted off to the right. Please Note: Ypres/ Ieper are the same place:
Ypres (French spelling), Ieper (Flemish spelling) Commission signposts are
green and white

Historical Information:  The Hazebrouck-Poperinghe railway line and the
Poperinghe-Ypres road formed the main communication between the bases and
the Flemish battlefields, and Lijssenthoek, lying close behind the extreme
range of enemy shell-fire, was a natural position for clearing hospitals. It
was first used by the French 15th Hopital D'Evacuation. In June, 1915, it
began to be used by British Casualty Clearing Stations; and between that
month and the Armistice it became the second greatest British War Cemetery.
>From April to August, 1918, the Casualty Clearing Stations fell back before
the German advance, and Field Ambulances (including a French Ambulance) took
their places; and the French graves in Plots XXVI, XXVII, and XXXI recalled
the French regiments that were sent to Flanders at that time. Twenty-four
British graves in Plot XXXI were brought from isolated positions near
Poperinghe after the Armistice. There are now nearly 10,000, 1914-18 war
casualties commemorated in this site.
