Looking for family info on my gr/gr/gr/grandmother, Sophia Boyd. She was born 22
February, 1792, in Kentucky, USA. Maybe Lexington or Fayette Co, KY. She married Peter
Henry Amyx on 27 November, 1812, in FAyette Co, Kentucky, USA. She died 20 Jan, 1882 in
Morgan Co, KY, USA.
Her father's name was John Boyd. I think he was from Virginia. He served in the
Revolutionary War with Matthew Amyx, Jr., Peter's father. Peter was born in North
Carolina, but he served in a unit from Virginia.
Sophia and Peter's daughter, Sophia Jane Amyx, was my gr/gr/grandmother. She was
married to William Sellards.
Any info on the Boyd family is greatly appreciated. I read somewhere that one of
Sophia's parents was related to the Breckenridge family (Abraham Lincoln's
mother's family). Have to dig that info out and see if I can find any leads on Sophia
