William Henry Boyce - Sergeant   
William Henry Boyce was Captain Michael Boyce's third child. Captain Michael Boyce served in the 15th ME. Infantry. William Henry Boyce initially enrolled as a private in the famous 2nd ME where he attained the rank of Corporal and, later, a Sergeant. After the 2nd ME was redistributed to several units (primarily the 20th ME), and after suffering many casualties, Sergeant William Henry Boyce was eventually transferred to the 15th ME Infantry. He became a 2nd Lt of Company C, and, later, he was promoted to Captain of Company I (his father, Captain Michael Boyce, had to pull some political strings to earn a second enlistment - this time to Company K). Captain Michael Boyce's son, William Henry Boyce, would serve the remainder of the war with his father. After the Civil War, Captain William Henry Boyce was honorably discharged. He married Emma Victoria Wade Phelps (I believe in Pittsburgh, PA or in Beaver Borough, PA), and together they raised two boys, William Henry Boyce, Jr., and McKeen Boyce. It was McKeen Boyce who would trade horses with the Nez Perce Indian Tribe located in Northwest Idaho, on behalf of the United States Government. McKeen Boyce's son, James McKeen Boyce, would serve in the Army Air Corps, during WWII. His grandson, John Conlin Boyce, enlisted in the U.S. Navy, in Pensacola, FL, out of college (UC Davis in California), and currently serves with a Department of Defense firm connected with the Pentagon.
