Earl Adams Boyce was born in Williamstown, Vermont, in the home of his parents, on what was once called the Brookfield Road, now known as Rood Pond RD.He attended the Boyce School (District #8) just down the hill, and attended Williamstown High School, which at that time was a 2 year program.He was Valedictorian of his class in 1913. 

He attended Spaulding High School in Barre, staying at his aunt's place during the week and going home on the weekend to Williamstown on the railroad.Earl graduated from Spaulding in 1915.

Although he wanted to become an attorney, he had to stay on the farm and take care of his mother, after the death of his father in 1918.He was a farmer for his entire lifetime, having a small dairy herd, and doing all of the work of the farm by horses up until 1965.

Earl Boyce was a maple sugarmaker, and won various awards at the Vermont Farm Show in Barre, VT for his high quality syrup.
From an early age, he was keenly interested in municipal affairs, and starting in the late 1940's, he was Justice of the Peace for 27 years and later, Town

Moderator of Williamstown for about 14 years.

He never missed a town meeting since he was eligible to vote in 1919.

During the 1960's, he heard various traffic cases as Justice of the Peace.
In the Jeffords Family History (1962) by Percy J. Jeffords, Earl Boyce is referred to as "a substantial and respected citizen of the town."He was never wealthy, but was honest and well regarded.

He died in a fire on Feb. 19th, 1979, in the very house that he was born in over 80 years previously.

BIRTH: FamilySearch transcription says "1899" but after close examination of the record on film it should be "1898".
