My name is John Boyce. The "Thomas Boyce's" named in this obit are my grandparents. Mrs Thomas Boyce was the former Mary Donegan, sister to James and Daniel Donegan, Last wednesday , May 24th, 2006 , in a farmhouse in Ireland, I sat talking to Jack and Josie Donegan. Jack is 88 years young and the nephew of Mary, James, and Daniel Donegan. I also took a picture of the 2 room farmhouse where Mary, James, and Daniel were born.
