JOY, Sylvanus, Canadian manufacturer, born in Utica, New York, 4 July, 1833. He was educated at Union college, the University of New York, and Queen's college, Kingston, Canada, where he was graduated in medicine in 1856. He afterward practised in Tilsonburg, Ontario, and has been for twenty-five years coroner of the county of Oxford. In 1880 he organized a company for the manufacture of sugar from sorghum, which did not prove remunerative; but he was more successful as a producer of wine from Canadian grapes, and was awarded a diploma at the World's fair at Paris. Dr. Joy is also one of the largest fruit-growers in the Dominion.--His daughter, Ida, artist, born in Tilsonburg, Ontario, in November, 1858, after studying art in this country was sent to Europe, where she remained for eight years. She received medals for paintings that were exhibited at the salon exhibitions in Paris, and the Royal Albert exhibition in London.
