Are these sentences correct:
1) John, Joseph, Harry, Tom and Barry live in Boston, London and Austin.
2) John, Joseph, Harry, Tom and Barry live in Boston, London or Austin.
3) John, Joseph, Harry, Tom and Barry live in either Boston, London or Austin.
I suppose '1' means that those five men in those three cities, without telling us who lives where.
'2' and '3' seems to mean that they all live in the same city, but the speaker does not know which city they live in.
Is that correct?

You are moving into territory where it doesn't much matter.
Thank you both very much,
I don't understand Tdol's reply. Does '2' mean anything at all without 'all'?
We can agree that those sentences are grammatically correct, but that doesn't mean they make sense.
