Just realised that I forgot to ask list members about the brothers John Boyd
and David Boyd.
So is any list member researching these two? Or do they also occur in
Buncombe Co., NC records?
When I check the 1790 US Census I could only find these John Boyd but no
David Boyd (So had David moved on or was he living with his brother as the
head of the House)
BOYD,John NC Co:Halifax Twp:Unknown
BOYD,John NC Co:Chatham Twp:Unknown
BOYD,John NC Co:Lincoln Twp:Unknown
BOYD,William NC Co:Lincoln Twp:Unknown
BOYD,John NC Co:Montgomery Twp:Unknown
Can anyone identify which family any of these entries came from please

James Boyd was born in Ireland on February 4, 1769. The first record of
in Buncombe County, NC is in 1806 when he purchased 50 acres on Bee
Creek. Some family members believe he, along with two brothers, John and
David, came to America by way of Charleston, South Carolina.
