Dear Listmembers and Members of the House of Boyd Society:
This was posted to another list I subscribe to and I thought it may
be of assistance to those of you with "Virginia Ancestors".

You only thought you were confused before. If a reference is made to a
person having been born
in Virginia as early as 1728 or as late as 1863, it could mean that he
or she was born in any
Illinois from 1781 to Statehood in 1818
Indiana from 1781 to Statehood in 1816
Kentucky from 1775 to Statehood in 1792
Maryland from 1775 to Statehood in 1792
North Carolina from 1728 to 1799
Ohio from 1778 to Statehood in 1803
Pennsylvania from 1752 to 1786
Tennessee from 1760 to 1803
West Virginia from 1769 to 1863
Could be a helpful piece of trivia!
