"When Samuel Bournes inherited the property of his father, George Bournes of Moyne in 1832 he ""cleared out"" the group of families at the southern end of the village and ""built a substantial and commodius two storey house with suitable offices and walled garden"". (O.S. Name Books Vol 1 No. 4) He may then have built the pound, which was near the ferry and supervised by a man named JOYNT. At the clearing out, Anthony McGuiness, the spokesman for the evicted families, was given the choice of Lenaveney or Gortacraher and rent free for five years. Both areas were then uncultivated bogland. He accepted Lenaveney. Today most families of Lenaveney are of his lineage." (See Joynt marriage page for Bournes/Joynt marriages)

The Catholics of Voluntown are few in number and are attended by the resident pastor at Jewett City. Services are held once a fortnight in Union Hall. Rev. Thos. J. JOYNT is now building in that village a neat church, which he ecpects to have completed this fall. The Catholics number about three hundred, and are mostly of French-Canadian extraction.

The fire of 1871 was not nearly so destructive in the town of Novesta, as that of ten years later. Not only were there fewer settlers but the fire does not appear to have been so extensive. The fire was most in the pine and slashings, where dry fuel was found. On the low ground the muck took fire, and burned with a smouldering flame. David M. Houghton was the only person who failed to escape to the river. This was owing to the sickness of his wife. They were supposed to be lost, until the second day after the fire, when friends arrived and assisted in carrying Mrs. Houghton out. Their barn, sleigh, corn, fences, and other property were destroyed; their house escaped.

The fire of 1881 was much more general and much more destructive, though unattended with loss of life. The following is a list of losses: John Dickerson, house and barn; John Van Kaughnet, House and barn; Archibald McPhee, barn; Charles Curles, hay; William Hartwick, hay; William Marsh, household goods, hay; Edward Deneen, hay and straw; James Abeal, barn, wheat, implements; Roswell Allen, hay; James Bruce, house and barn; James Phillips, house, wheat; W. A. Yorke, house, straw; Edward Balch, house and lumber; Aaron Huffman, house; A. Phillips, house; Archibald McArthur, house and barn; H. B. Hubbard, tools and implements; Orlando Strickland, house; A. G. Houghton, stable, lumber; John Seriver, house, stock; Michael Race, hay; John McLean, barn; Silas Woods, cooper shop, steak, household goods; Warren Barry, household goods; Martin Anthus, house; William H. Brown, hay; M. H. Quick, cut lumber; James Mattoon, house and barn; Daniel McClory, hay; A. R. Thompson, hay; Morrison Jones, two houses, hay; H. C. Downing, house, grain; Ogden Atwell, household goods; Chester Hall, house; James Wilson, saw-mill, tools; William Balch, house, barn, implements; M. Devall, household goods; H. Firman, household goods; Dugald McArthur, house, wheat; Silar Huffman, barn; T. Spenser, barn; H. H. Wilson, barn; S. Slack, barn; Alexander McCullum, stock, implements; John JOYNT, house, barn, hay; S. D. Snyder, house; George Tyler, barn; Patrick Nelson, implements; Adam Parker, fodder; Johnston Elwell, lumber; Reuben Mosher, house, barn, hay, tools; Andrew McTine, Marion Parker, barn; R. H. Lewis, rails; John Blades, barn, straw, hay; William Cooper, hay and lumber; David Harris, barn, hay; George Hanshaw, house, barn, hay, mill damaged. As a general rule, the destruction of building, especially barns implied the loss, also, of contents, and that the crops, whether garnered or in the field, were destroyed, fences burned, valuable standing timber ruined; in short, the shelter and food of family and stock, if any of the latter were left, was swept away.


The following town histories are taken from the 1878 History of Logan County, Illinois.

LATHAM is situated in the southeast corner of the county on the Pekin, Lincoln & Decatur Railroad. It was named in honor of Col. Latham and was laid out on the lands of Edwin A. JOYNT and L. Parrish in November, 1871. The first store in town was built by William Dardin, who has since gone, and the building is now unoccupied.

The second was erected by Frederick JOYNT; the third by Dr. Leathers, now the grocery of Joseph Rue; and the fourth by Henry Metchner. The postmaster was Thomas Hayes. In 1872 an elevator was erected by G. M. Stines & Co. It was burned on the night of October 8, 1875. The next Spring the present elevator was built in its place. The shipments of grain from this point are large, the greater portion of it going to Toledo. In 1875 a two-story schoolhouse was erected which is now occupied. The school is ungraded and under the township control.

The Methodist Church was erected here in the Spring of 1872. The Congregation had been organized in a schoolhouse about a mile west of town. The Baptists were organized in "Two Mile Grove" in the schoolhouse and in the fall of 1872 removed their place of worship to Latham where they erected a church. The oldest settlers in this locality came about 1849. These were Samuel Parrish, who came from Jersey County, and is still living here; Fred. and E. A. JOYNT, the first-named settling in 1849, the second in 1852. Andrew Simpson and Henry Hall were also early settlers. The country about town is quite level and very productive

 From the book "The Irish in Argentina" by Thomas Murray:

Michael RYAN, born in Co. Limerick in 1808, dead on August 27th. 1870.
Married with Jane O'DONNELL JOYNT, Irish. They had one daughter.

The following is an 1895 biography of Henry Clay Shufelt, husband of Alice
JOYNT and Lydia Marsh:

"Henry C. Shufelt, residing on a farm in section 18, Winnebago City
township, Faribault county, is one of the representative pioneers of
southern Minnesota. Mr. Shufelt was born in Vermont, November 10, 1831, son
of George and Alvira (Glover) Shufelt, who were of Holland descent. About
1854 his parents left the Green Mountain State and took up their abode in
Winnebago County, Wisconsin, where they passed the residue of their lives
and died. Hency C. was reared on a farm in his native state and received his
education in the common schools of the neighborhood in which he lived. After
his marriage, which event occurred in 1852, he settled down on a farm in
Vermont, and continued to reside there for two years. He then sought a home
in the West. For six years he was engaged in farming in Winnebago County,
Wisconsin, and at the end of that time came from there to Minnesota, first
settling in Rice county, and two years later coming to Faribault county and
locating upon the land he still owns and occupies. He secured title to this
farm under the homestead act; and here for thirty-five years he has lived
and prospered. He now has a beautiful home, shaded by trees of his own
planting, his farm is well improved with good barns, fences, grove, etc.,
and an air of general thrift prevails. August 28, 1852, at Enosburg,
Vermont, Mr. Shufelt married Miss Alice JOYNT, a native of county Limerick,
Ireland. She came to America when twelve years of age, in company with an
aunt, and afterward was joined by her mother and sisters. For some years she
lived with an uncle and aunt in New Jersey, where she received a fair
education. Mr. and Mrs. Shufelt have had five children, only one of whom,
William Henry, is living. He was married July 1, 1892, to Miss Delia
Bartholomew, a native of Marquette county, Wisconsin, and a daughter of
Dexter and Ellen (Jones) Bartholomew, the former a native of Jefferson
county, New York, and the latter of Wales. Some years ago her parents
settled in Blue Earth county, Minnesota, and there, November 26, 1893, her
father died. Her mother is still a resident of that county. Politically, Mr.
H. C. Shufelt has been a Republican since the organization of that party. He
has held the office of Supervisor in his township and has also filled other
local offices. December 14, 1863, he enlisted in Company H, Second Minnesota
Cavalry, and served during the Indian troubles, being on duty until November
20, 1865, when he was discharged on account of disability. He is a member of
James Clabaugh Post, No., 54, G. A. R. During the Indian troubles, while her
husband was absent from home, Mrs. Shufelt and her nine-year-old son
remained alone, and were here at the time the Root family were massacred by
the Indians, seven miles north of her shanty. Many were the hardships and
trials she endured in the early years of their residence on the frontier,
but she proved herself equal to every emergency. For the past fourteen years
she has been an invalid, and the same courage and Christian fortitude that
sustained her in early life now help her to bear up under affliction. She is
a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church."

October 12, 1895, James Jemison Hartman, a farmer in Winnebago City Twp,
Faribault Co., MN, died at age 34 of what was thought to be typhoid. At his
death, he left Lydia (Marsh) age 28 and five children. On June 9, 1900,
Lydia married the above then widower Henry C. Shufelt, producing a daughter
Laurel. Lydia died in 1905 from what was thought to be dropsy (congestive
heart failure) at a young 38. She is buried in Basey Cemetary next to James.
Laurel and her stepbrother Jay Clarion Hartman were taken in by Loren Elmer
Hartman a farmer in the area.

Lucknow  [CANADA] Public Library

Library in the Carnegie Hall Since 1910

The present Town Hall, construction of which was aided materially by a donation of $7,500 from millionaire Andrew Carnegie, on the stipulation that a Carnegie Library be embodied in the building and that it receive an annual municipal grant.

Negotiations for this assistance from Mr. Carnegie were commenced in 1906 but it was not till 1910 that the building became a reality and was opened and dedicated during the reeveship of John JOYNT. In his dedicatory remarks at the opening of the Town Hall, on June 6th, 1910 Mr. Joynt said; And now ladies and gentlemen, by virtue of the authority and conferred in me by the ratepayers of the village of Lucknow, I hereby officially and finally declare open and dedicated for civil, moral and educational purposes, the Town Hall and Public Library, hoping that wisdom, harmony and justice shall prevail in all deliberations held within its walls, that the influence of the good books which it contains shall go forth more and more to be the betterment itself shall stand through long years to come, a monument to him whose liberality rendered it possible and to those whose public spirit carried it to its completion.

"Pharmacy, shops apartments lost, 10 homeless

By Don Campbell
Citizen police writer

As Dalton JOYNT stood across the street from the remains of the building he loved, friends arrived to offer condolences, much as they would to someone who had just lost an old friend or a member of the family. And while firefighters continued to pour water on the stubborn blaze, the 81-year-old couldn't avoid a flood of memories about the building and the pharmacy that had carried the JOYNT family name since the 1920s at the corner of Holland and Wellington streets. The fire early Tuesday left 10 people homeless, destroyed four businesses and caused $1 million in damage. It also burned part of Dalton Joynt's past. Investigators believe the fire started in the basement of the three-storey structure. It was first noticed by a tenant in an upstairs apartment who smelled smoke shortly after 1 a.m. Within minutes, flames reached the roof and tenants were barely able to escape in the clothes they wore. "My father used two horses to help scoop out the lot to build the building," Joynt recalled Tuesday as he watched the fire. "That was in 1924. We grew up on Hilson (Avenue) and we used to go back and forth to here on the streetcar. "This is really sad. At one time, I lived right up there," he said, pointing to the apartment directly above the pharmacy. "To this day, I've still got my medicine there." In the early years, the drug store carried the family names of Southwell, then Garrison and finally Nichol, before the Joynts decided to operate it themselves. Joynt and his brother, Walter, bought it from their parents in 1939 and ran it for the next 34 years, continuing to operate the business after they sold the building in 1971. In 1973, the brothers turned the business over to a niece, who kept it in the family for another 17 years. Though she sold out in 1990, the business's name remained the same - almost. "I will always think of it as Joynt's Drug Store," said Joynt. "Not (Joynt's) Pharmacy." Those without a place to live include Shaunna and Lionel Bernier, who celebrated their one-month wedding anniversary Monday. They moved into a third-floor apartment on Oct. 1 and lost everything, including their wedding pictures and presents. Lionel Bernier is on a disability pension and Shaunna has shared custody of a 10-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. Lionel said they had just received Christmas presents from his mother in Pembroke. And the couple had no insurance. "Insurance is not one of the first things you think of," Shaunna said. "We were hoping to clear up our wedding expenses first.""

From "If Walls Could Talk. The Limerick Athenaeum. The story of an Irish Theatre since 1852" Research and Text: James A McMahon. Produced by Seamus Flynn.

"The words of William Lane JOYNT, Maurice Lenihan and John Francis Maguire sear with pain when they speak of the Famine. They recorded the unimaginable; their rage burns through the ages with anger and guilt familiar only to those who witness such catastrophes. In November 29, 1853, LANE-JOYNT while fund-raising for the Athenaeum said: "The disastrous calamities of the last eleven years...the destruction of the poor man's food...the pestilence that walked by night...the arrow that flew by noon day...the countless hosts who were hurried into untimely graves...the exodus that drained the country of its hardiest children...all these are passing out of remembrance.""


Article on Grange House, Baldoyle, Co. Dublin, Ireland: (Copied off line and URL can't be found again now!):

"Recent Times.
In the mid-19th century, a family called Lane Joynt was in residence at the Grange House in Baldoyle. The Lane Joints hailed from Ballyvaughan Co., Clare and were a well known family of the time, having various residence about Dublin. They did particularly well for themselves in the professions, one being a solicitor in practice on St. Stephens Green and it is on record that a William Lane Joynt was Lord Mayor of Dublin for the term 1866 to 1867......."

"Grange House.
The spacious hallway of this building was well-lined with full book shelves, more than likely a legacy of the LANE JOYNTS.Two peculiarly shaped rooms that ran off a dining room and a bedroom were thought to have been powder closets. In the large kitchen was a large flagstone floor. The kitchen had one unusual door which seemed to lead for some unexplained reason to nowhere. It wa only later when one of the LANE JOYNTS returned to the house to attend a furniture auction that Mrs. Kelly discovered that this was a bricked up entrance to a tunnel which is supposed to have run from Grange Abbey to St. Doulaghs church at Ballygriffin."
