Information provided from the files of Ann Bowman found at
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ivyplace/mohler/#joy:
"JOY Family researcher's believe that George W. Joy buried in the Mohler Cemetery, could be the same George Joy who was born about 1783 in South Carolina and died on January 15, 1875 in Lampasas County, Texas.

"George Joy (1783-1875) was married twice. He had five children from his first marriage (wife's name unknown) and five from his second marriage to widow Martha Chesser. He had a step-son named William Lewis Chesser. George Joy was a veteran of the War of 1812 and War with the Seminole Indians."
