I believe that it is highly possible that Eunice Joy Warren would be the
daughter of Sewall & Sophia Joy.
Sophia Joy (1796-1833) and a son, George Joy (1824-1826), are buried in the
Brown Cemetery in Carlton. ( http://www.rootsweb.com/~nyorlean/cembrwn.htm )

This was posted on another Rootsweb mailing list. Thought it worth sharing
> The term "jumped ship" unquestionably has its origin as a reference to
"someone who left his job on the crew of the ship when they came into port."
The term can have that meaning if it is appropriate to the context of the
narrative in which the term occurs.
> Over time, the term came to be used not only for a member of a ship's crew
who deserted his post but also for another person who was being carried on a
ship as a passenger and who then deserted to remain in a foreign port of
call. For example, the term is often used to refer to 'Hessian' soldiers who
were shipped to America by the British during the RevWar and who deserted in
their American port of call with the intention of remaining in America
> The term might also have an even broader, allegorical connotation
referring to the action of someone who deserted any path of life which was
expected for them and who began a secretive life apart from that which was
expected. Use of the term in this broad sense suggests such action was not
only unexpected but was in some manner regarded somewhat illicit.

interpretation is intended for the term "jumped ship."
