Hi,

You might check the following land patent records for your family (Boice/Boyce):

http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/PatentSearch/Default.asp?

Also, could the town you are talking about be Peoria?? Saw on the web where there is a Mormon museum there. There is also a town called Navoo in Hancock Co.(2 counties over) that has a tourist site of the Mormon town that used to be there (I've been there very nice setup)

Good luck with your search
Sarah
