I am doing research on the family of Edward Boyce, son of James Boice and Catherine
O'Brian, of the Parish of Killygarvan, County Donegal, who married Roseanna McCollum,
daughter of Brian McCollum and Margery Denny, also of Killygarvan. They were married 15
June 1828, at St. Malachy's (Roman Catholic) Church, in Saint John, New Brunswick,
Canada. They had at least eleven children who were born between 1829 and 1845. All eleven
children were baptized at St. Malachy's.
I am also interested in the family of Neil Boyce and Mary Collins and the family of Denis
Boyce and Mary McCollum. They were also living in the Saint John area in the early 1800s.
Neil Boyce and Denis Boyce were witnesses at Edward and Roseanna's wedding. Edward,
Neil and Denis may have been brothers.
Is anyone familiar with any of these families?
