John H. Boyd,
Thank you for replying. I appreciate the kind people who are willing to help
one another out.
What is the Boyd Tree Project?
I have the information from the LDS web site.
I contacted the original submitter (Fran Aaron) and she got all of her
information from a Terry Boyd in Huntsville, Alabama. All she had was an
address. I wrote Terry and never got a response. I contacted information
for Huntsville, AL and they only had 1 Terry Boyd in Huntsville. I called
this Terry Boyd and it was not the same one. I have hit a dead end with this
I could not locate Henry or Margaret on the IGI.
I posted on Roots Web after I did all of this in hopes that one of Henry's
descendants recognized the information and would reply.
If you have any other suggestions, I would glady try them.
Thank you again for the response.
Sincerely, Sharon Stosberg-Roberson
I want to say thank you for replying. It was very considerate of you to list
so many ways to find my Boyds.
I would like to go over your suggestions and let you know what else I have
and why I am asking about these Boyds.
The information that I listed came from the Ancestral File at the LDS Family
Search. I could not find Henry or Margaret Boyd on the IGI records. I
contacted the person (Fran Aaron) who submitted the information and she got
all of her information from a Terry Boyd in Huntsville, Alabama. Fran Aaron
only had an mailing address Terry Boyd . I wrote to Terry and never got a
response. I called information for Huntsville, and they only had 1 Terry. I
contacted this Terry by phone and this wasn't the person. I hit a dead end
Fran Aaron did send me some information on Henry Boyd, it was some type of
land record where he was splitting up his land between his children. It does
not have Margaret's maiden name on it. It does have some of his children's
spouses, but not Robert E. Boyd - the person I am looking for.
My sister -n - law and I are working on this together. She has made a trip
to Lincoln County, TN (by the way, Lincoln County, TN and Lincoln County, KY
are no where near one another. Lincoln County, TN is on the border of
Tennessee, and Alabama. Lincoln County, KY is around the middle of the
state. I looked it up - I wondered about that after you mentioned it.). She
didn't find alot, but will make another trip out there.
Here is my story on my Robert E. Boyd:
I am looking for the parents of Robert E. Boyd. My line stops there. My
Robert E. Boyd b)Sep 8, 1835 in Lincoln County, TN d)Feb 27, 1913 Limestone
County, AL(information from death record) m)Aug 21, 1866 in Lincoln County,TN
(information from marriage record) to Mahulda Freelove Hannah b)Aug 1835 TN
(information from Lincoln County, TN Census 1900, 1910, 1920)
children:(1870, 1900, 1910, 1920 Lincoln County, TN Census)
The census states Mahulda was the mother of 8 children, but I only have 7. I
do need to get a copy of the 1880 census to see if there is another child
listed. It could be that the child died in between census taking.
1) Margaret Emily Boyd b)Aug 1, 1868 (have more info) (on 1870 census)
2) Robert Boyd (have more info) (do not have on census yet - feel it's 1880)
3) James H. Boyd b)May 1878 (on 1900 census)
4) Mary Jane Boyd b)May 1880 (have more info) (on 1900 census)
5) Joseph Andrew Boyd b)Apr 1882 (have more info) (on 1900 census)
6) Nancy Adeline Boyd b)Aug 14, 1886 (have more info) (on 1900 census)
7) John Vasser Boyd b)Sep 26, 1889 (have more info) (on 1900 census)
I started looking for Robert E. Boyd's parents. I found Henry Boyd on the
LDS AF with Robert E. born the same place and date as my Robert E. I just
have no proof to connect the two. I just have similarities. For example:
AF Robert E. mother is Margaret - My Robert E. oldest daughter is Margaret.
AF Robert E. brothers & sisters James, Mary Jane, John, Andrew, & Nancy. -
My Robert E. named his sons & daughters the same names.
My Robert E. had a son named James H. (which may be Henry).
I cannot find another Robert E. in Lincoln County at the same time.
I was hoping by posting on Roots Web, that one of Henry's descendants may
have responed (they haven't yet) with the proof I need. I was hoping someone
had a diary, family bible, anything written with my Robert E.'s wife and
children. The land document that I mentioned earlier has Robert E. on it
with no wife. At the time the document was written, my Robert E. was married
with a child.
I know we need to make another trip to Lincoln County, TN to dig some more.
We are still hoping someone in our family has a family record with Robert E.
parents that they may have overlooked.
I will contact the lady doing research in Lincoln County, TN. Thank you for
I have had some more information come in about my Boyd's and I will get it
all together and e-mail you with it. (Do you accept GEDCOM files?)
If you have any other suggestions, I would gladly take them.
Thank you again.
Sincerely, Sharon Stosberg-Roberson

for selling or promoting products or services, soliciting clients, or any

We have the Henry Boyd family on the Boyd Trees Project, with a few details
that you don't have listed. This information came from the LDS web site,
and if you check there, you can get the name of the original submitter. You
can also check the IGI on that web page as well.
I would firstly suggest that you look up the 12 children in
the International Genealogical Index (IGI for the USA. This
should give you Margaret's surname. It also should give you
a town and County location in TN as well.
If you can't find any entries in the IGI, I would assume
that by 1848 TN had Official Births, Deaths and Marriage
records and you would need to see if you can find an Index
for them. (You may need to ask the Group for such a source
of this information)
Secondly, once you have Margaret's surname, it should be
easy to look up when she married Henry Boyd either from her
surname or through the Boyd's. From the dates of the
children I would expect they got married in 1825 or 1826 -
most likely in TN. Although Margaret's family might have
moved to GA and they got married there and then moved to TN
after the marriage. If the later position happened you
would expect that Henry's family might have been living hear
by which MIGHT help determine his place of birth in GA.
Thirdly, I am not sure what source gave you the information
that Henry Boyd was born in 1800 but when you look at the
IGI I would expect that you find several born that year in
GA. It might be important then to have what the second
names of the elder children are to see if that might help
you. Going from the children's names Henry's father might
be William with mother Mary Jane. Anyway post them all to
the group so others may be able to help you to determine
which are not yours. When I checked my PC I have 668 Henry
Boyd's without the ones with initials or second names. So
while it is not as common as John or James there will be a
number, even in GA.
Fourthly, I would not be surprised if you find that there is
an 13th child born about 1829 due to the 4 year gap. Unless
there was some reason for him to be aware like a War or
I have 2 researchers - one who has family in Lincoln co, TN
and the other Lincoln Co KY. But as I am not sure if there
are two separate Counties or the border moved I will send
you those privately.
Oh, when you find out the children's full names you
should/might be able to see about 20 years later or so when
and who they married.
I trust that these suggestions will be helpful to you in
expanding your tree

Do you have your own e-mail list of friends that you
sometimes send things you like to share?
Then please take time to consider protecting their
right to privacy.
E-mail makes it so easy to send someting to a lot
of peopel that if you had to do it by postal service
you wouldn't take the time or expend the cost of
But consider this. IF you had to do it by postal
service would you send everyone a list of all
the poeple you mailed the letter to? No way.
But that is exaclty what we do with a CC list.
Just a suggestion. Instead of using CC for your
distribution use BCC instead if your email program
BCC sends a copy to each person on your list without
showing everyone else on your distribution list.
This protects the privacy of your friends and prevents
their email address from being spread all over.
It also prevents folks from sending messages back to
your entire list.
Most people will not take the time to remove the header
information which includes the CC list. They forward
the message that gets forwarded and forwarded and all
those addresses eventually will end up on some spammers
I'm sure you have received e-mails with multiple forwards
in which the header is many times longer than the message
That's why I don't forward anything or send anything that I
am not willing to take the time to "clean it up" and send a
I don't know how this happens but once in great while
I get a message that Juno treats each forward as
a separate attachment. When I click on the attachment
there's another attachment and so on until I get to the

I hit delete. But, again, thankfully this situation doesn't
happen very often. Using BCC will prevent this from
Juno doesn't have a BCC so if I forward something I don't even
use a CC list. Everyone gets their own copy. I don't have a long

I have a photo of the cemetery stone of Rev. John Calvin Boyd
who was born 27 June 1814 and died 3 June 1886.
I photographed this headstone in 1988 in Knox County, Ohio. We were
in Ohio to attend a DAR ceremony honoring one of my Harris ancestors
who fought in the American Revolution.
We were driving along the road and saw the stone. It is a large stone that
was facing the road-you couldn't miss it.
I stopped and photographed the stone but I have forgotten the name of the
cemetery or the exact location.
So--if anyone is related to Rev. Boyd--contact me and I'll mail the photograph

I do not know whether this info relates to your search for info on
Hyatts or this is just a genealogical coincidence. For what its worth,
here is what I have.
My ancestor John Boyd married Mary Roberts in June 1785, in Surry
County, N.C. Martha, one of 15 children, b.1791, married in 1813 to one
"Harmon Hiatt". One of Martha's brothers, Hugh, b.Oct. 1, 1806, in
Virginia, married 1829 in Tennessee, had a son named
Dudley, b.1831 in Morgan County, Ind., married on Oct 10, 1850, to Mary

There once was a man named George Thomas, a pastor in a small New England
town. One Easter Sunday morning he came to the Church carrying a rusty,
bent, old bird cage, and set it by the pulpit. Several eyebrows were raised
and, as if in response, Pastor Thomas began to speak. "I was walking
through town yesterday when I saw a young boy coming toward me swinging this
bird cage. On the bottom of the cage were three little wild birds,
shivering with cold and fright.
I stopped the lad and asked, "What you got there son?"
"Just some old birds," came the reply.
"What are you gonna do with them?" I asked.
"Take 'em home and have fun with 'em," he answered. I'm gonna tease 'em and
pull out their feathers to make 'em fight. I'm gonna have a real good
"But you'll get tired of those birds sooner or later. What will you do
"Oh, I got some cats," said the little boy. "They like birds. I'll take
'em to them."
The pastor was silent for a moment. "How much do you want for those birds,
"Huh??!!! Why, you don't want them birds, mister. They're just plain old
field birds. They don't sing-they ain't even pretty!" "How much?" the
pastor asked again. The boy sized up the pastor as if he were crazy and
said, "$10?" The pastor reached in his pocket and took out a ten dollar
He placed it in the boy's hand. In a flash, the boy was gone. The pastor
picked up the cage and gently carried it to the end of the alley where there
was a tree and a grassy spot. Setting the cage down, he opened the door,
and by softly tapping the bars persuaded the birds out, setting them free.
Well, that explained the empty bird cage on the pulpit, and then the pastor
began to tell this story. One day Satan and Jesus were having a
conversation. Satan had just come from the Garden of Eden, and he was
gloating and boasting.
"Yes, sir, I just caught the world full of people down there. Set me a
trap, used bait I knew they couldn't resist. Got 'em all!" "What are you
going to do with them?" Jesus asked. Satan replied, "Oh, I'm gonna have
fun! I'm gonna teach them how to marry and divorce each other, how to hate
and abuse each other, how to drink and smoke and curse. I'm gonna teach
them how to invent guns and bombs and kill each other. I'm really gonna
"And what will you do when you get done with them?" Jesus asked.
"Oh, I'll kill 'em," Satan glared proudly.
"How much do you want for them?" Jesus asked.
"Oh, you don't want those people.
They ain't no good. Why, you'll take them and they'll just hate you.
They'll spit on you, curse you and kill you!! You don't want those
people!!" "How much?" He asked again.
Satan looked at Jesus and sneered, "All your tears, and all your blood."
Jesus said, "DONE!" Then He paid the price.
The pastor picked up the cage he opened the door and he walked from the
Isn't it funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why
the world's going to hell. Isn't it funny how we believe what the
newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Isn't it funny how
everyone wants to go to heaven provided they do not have to believe, think,
say, or do anything the Bible says.
Or is it scary? Isn't it funny how someone can say "I believe in God" but
still follow Satan (who, by the way, also "believes" in God). Isn't it
funny how you can send a thousand jokes through e-mail and they spread like
wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people
think twice about sharing.
Isn't it funny how the lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene pass freely through

This is partly confirms an exchange of information in 1992
about Boyd's in Panama:-
In a letter from Lenore Dixon, Editor of Dean Road, (1353
Denniston Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15217-1330 USA) dated
24 March 1992 to me she said:-
"Last Fall the public broadcasting station here had a series
on the Civil War (1860-1865). Because of
this series there were a number of other programs offered.
"After the Civil War and the humiliating loss (in their
eyes) many Confederate Army men and their
families fled to South America. It is probable that some
landed in Panama. The program I saw was
about a large number of descendants of Americans in Brazil.
This may be the reason that there was
Frederico Boyd in Panama - his ancestors were probably from
Georgia/Alabama or the Carolinas. This would make an
interesting research project."
It raises the question as to which other South American
Countries besides Brazil did these "Southern Boyd's" go to?
It also raises the question as to what States in the USA?
While Lenore said Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas, I
would not be surprised to be told that other Confederate
States saw Boyd's leave the USA and start a new life in some
of these South American Countries. I would expect that such
countries as Panama, Chile, Argentine, Bolivia, might be
some of the other destinations they might have gone to.
They may have followed migrations from either Ireland or
Scotland to these South American Counties.
If you are able to add any thing on this migration you could
tell the group please.

Perhaps your first task may be to confirm the full names of
Fred, Mary, Dora etc. As David Dawson has pointed out in
his response to you, you may be able to find his family in
the International Genealogical Index (IGI) by the LDS
Church. But I am not sure if they would list Fred and
Frederick together or separately, so you will need to find
the correct name first. While Frederick or Fred may not be
the most common Boyd name, there would still be enough
around to quite easily get confused with the wrong family.
You might be able to do this several ways:-
firstly from his death certificate
Secondly from Electoral roll;
You might be able to look up a business Directory for the
County, phone book, Post Office directory or some other
County source. However these may not have his full name but
only his initials which may not help confirm that you have
the "right" Fred Boyd. You would also have to live in or
near to the State so you could go to an Library or the State
and or County archives to look up such sources.
Do you know where the three daughters were born? As you may
be able to find Fred's full name from their birth
certificates or the Kansas State Index of Births for the
period. I am sorry I can't give you a web site for such an
index but some of our Kansas Cousins might be able to supply
that to you.
When you are able to confirm his full name you should be
able to either through the IGI or the State records (assume
Kansas) when and where they married. You should also be
able to find his birth from the same sources. If it is from
the IGI this will give you his parents - while you might be
able to find this from the State Index as well although you
may need to buy the birth certificate to find that out from
the State Records. When you get either his marriage or his
birth records come back to the group to see what else we may
be able to help you with.
Does your family Bible tell you how long they have lived in
Kansas, if not, you may need to start to look possible
