Description:
A photo of William J. Joyce, Battalion Firefighter. I study my family, and today I'm posting a picture of my 3rd Great Grandpa, William J. Joyce. There's a pattern in my family that the first born boy would be named Thomas or William. If you were a Thomas, your son would be named William and vise versa. During the Cleveland Clinic fire of 1902, his brother Patrick was killed by a collapsed boiler room. When William heard he came as quickly as possible and found his Brother. Since then he banned anyone in the family from becoming a firefighter.
