I have just spent 5 days answering a query I got – when I go to the 7th last generation
and though I could not find any possible connection to any of the 815 Boyd Family Chapters
that I have.
I had one last look in a document, and found them in Chapter 4/242. This is a group of
about 8 Boyd families in Bedford, Patrick and Franklin Counties which quite a number of
you have contacted me about over the last decade or so.
This query said that High’s parents were “A Joseph Boyd, 1737 – 1820, who married
Elizabeth Wallace, 1746 – 1802” and it show Hugh had 17 siblings. If this information
works out it might allow us to connect several of these families in Ch 4/242.
I have just sent a reply back – 16 page – to see if I can get some more details on this
connection to ensure that we have the right link
As best that I can work out – if I HAVE THE RIGHT CONNECTIONS – This Joseph Boyd came from
Derry Township in now Dauphin Co., PA (It might have been Lancaster County, PA in the
I will let you know as this research progress
