Thanks Virginia! Anything you can find is greatly appreciated. I didn't know that George JOYCE moved to Alma and had a furniture store.

My grandfather was son of Enos H. BARNES & Nellie Jane FEE. (Grandpa was b. 1888 in Woodruff) Nellie Jane FEE was daughter of Thomas J. FEE & Micha JOYCE who had come from Center Point, Linn Co., Iowa to Woodruff.

Thomas J. FEE was a preacher and it was his 2nd wife, Mariah (EVANS) METCALF who went to Woodruff. Some of the JOYCEs also went to Woodruff from Center Point, IA with the FEEs.

There are many of all these families buried in the Woodruff Cemetery.

My grandfather, being the eldest of six children, received the FEE Family Photo Album in which there are photos of FEEs and JOYCEs and also some BARNES' have been added. In the wooden box of photos are some Woodruff photos including the BARNES store, the Woodruff School and the farmhouse that belonged to my great-grandfather, Enos H. BARNES.

I am hoping to one day get to Woodruff and see what is left of the place.

Linda.
