Our parents have passed away and some of our siblings have gone, too. We are now the "older generation" in our family. The oldest is 74 and the youngest - well, isn't so young any more. We are the Joyce Cousins - the grandchildren of Lycurgus Mino Joyce and Beatrice Mary Smith, who married 10 December 1902 Hardin County, Illinois.

We came from several states to share a meal and some memories in the area where our great-grandfather, James Pinkney Joyce, settled in the early days of the Civil War. No matter where we live, Hardin County is still where we connect to our past.
