This tidbit came from the Ohio Genealogical Newsletter Vol 30 Number 11.
"Two years ago, at the Genealogical Forum of Portland, Oregon Library, I was
skimming the query sections in an Ontario, Canada County Genealogical Society
In a twenty year old issue of that Canadian publication I ran across a query
seeking information about my great grandfather. The address was no longer
good. This past summer, I traveled to that area and found a woman of the same
surname (of the man who placed the query). I phoned and found she was the
man's ex-wife. The ex- called the querier, who then called my motel room.
The next morning he shared pictures of my great grandparents and many of
their children. He also had information defining the previous (gg grands)
generation as well as filling in data about my great-grand aunts and uncles.
I now know g grandmother's maiden name and where she was born in Ireland. I
have clues to follow up g grandfathers origin, perhaps in Switzerland. All
from a 20 year old query.

I have a like success story that I want to relate here. Back in the middle
I learned that the father of my ancestor Luther Boyd of Delaware County, Ohio
was also named Luther Boyd and he came to Ohio from Vermont 1820's.
I found and purchased a large collection of old Genealogical Society of
In a 1970 issue I found clues that led me to a genealogical goldmine of my
Boyds. From the 15 year old (at the time) genealogical newsletter I traced my
Boyds back to 1720's in Massachusetts, and located blood cousins in
(Wilmington) Vermont who I visited in 1990. Since then Jerri Lynn and I have
made several visits back "home" as I like to call it. We will be attending
Wilmington's "Old Home Week" in August of 2000.
When I first went there I went to the town hall and to my delight I saw
some of the early settlers upon the walls. You guessed it-- several were
One of the citizens said to me "well, if you are a Boyd you are related to
most everyone in town".
I guess that is true because my ancestor Abraham Boyd settled in Wilmington
in the 1770's, he had 6 sons and just one of his grandsons had 14 children
Perhaps I got lucky but I've never left any stones unturned when it comes to
relatives. The simplest clue may solve the most enigmatic puzzle.
And don't forget to post those queries, whenever and wherever you can.
I am now taking queries for the January 2000 issue of the Boyd newsletter.

The William BOYD (son of William BOYD, farmer) that the researcher at Irish
World suggested might be my greatgreatgrandfather was from Knockavady P.O.
Desertcreight. At age 21 he married Isabella WEIR, age 18, daughter of
Andrew WEIR farmer on 14 Jan 1847. Isabella WEIR was from Drumnacross P.O.
Kildress. Marriage was recorded in Cookstown (Register No 1, Page Number
8, Entry Number 16) Witnesses were Samuel BOYD and John WEIR.
I looked at the LDS online site for the British Isles and couldn't find a
listing for them.
Anyone who knows anything about William BOYD and Isabella WEIR please contact
me. One of their children was Isabella BOYD who might be my
greatgrandmother. I still haven't totally ruled out the William BOYD married
to Catherine AIKEN but the WEIR one seems more plausible. Both of those
couples had a daughter Isabella BOYD. My ggm, Isabella BOYD, was married to
James FERSON. Oein Kerr from Irish World is in the process of trying to find
Church records of William and Isabella's children's birth and/or christening
I do know that whichever ones were mine...they had at least three children.
I was told by a cousin that he thought that they had about seven children.
One of their daughters, whose name I do not know, married a James REID. I
called James REID (grandson of aforementioned James REID) recently but
unfortunately he doesn't know his grandmother's name. :(
Another of their sons was grandfather to Stanley BOYD who currently lives in
Co Tyrone. I spoke with Stanley not long ago and he is going to try to find
out more information for me.
Does anyone on this list currently live in Co Tyrone? If so, please email me

There are two BOYDE spellings on my sheet. Unfortunately, I did not copy the
BOYDE pages. Sorry! The two that I have are as follows:
Boyde, James Mayo Drum
Boyde, John Mayo Drum
I typed the names as they appeared. Those that are abbreviated were not done
so by me. I think the spelling of at least one of the parishes or baronies
left off a letter, e.g., Desertcrea. I have always seen it spelled
Desertcreat or Desertcreight.
I hope this is helpful to some of you. I am hoping that some of them from
Tyrone might be some of my ancestors.
How many Benjamin Franklin BOYDs were there in Somerset County in the late 1800s? Apparently, several.
I don't know whether any of you remember me, but I have been searching for my GG Grandfather, Benjamin Franklin BOYD, for the past several months (about 8, actually). I knew very little about him, except that he was married to Drucilla PRITTS, and his children included my G Grandfather, Charles BOYD (born in 1873 in Ursina, Somerset County, PA). Not much to go on, but I was thankful to my Internet cousins who helped provide some possible answers and suggestions for further research.
I just returned from a trip back to my home in Scottdale, PA, and spent one afternoon at the Somerset County Courthouse (actually, only about 3 hours), with a quick sidetrip to the Ursina Cemetery. This was my first trip there, and it was somewhat fruitful (I'm looking forward to having more time to address other questions). I want to share what I learned and ask for any other comments or suggestions you may have.
I know from David BOYD ("deacondave") that one Benjamin Franklin BOYD (b. 1855, d. 1903) died in Oil City, PA, when he fell from an oil rig.
Another David BOYD researcher has a Benjamin Franklin "Frank" BOYD married to Drusilla ELLIOTT. Same first name for the wife, but wrong family. This family appears to have come from Westmoreland County, PA.
I see from a posting by Cindy Hoskinson on GenForum that another Benjamin F. BOYD left Somerset County in 1907 for Shadyside, OH. He was born in 1860 and died in 1938. She shows him married to Minerva STING (1865-1952).
Yet another Benjamin BOYD is mentioned in Keith A. DULL's book, "Some Early Families of Somerset and Fayette Counties Pennsylvania." Other researchers have also pointed out this Benjamin as my possible connection. DULL's book lists his birth year as 1842 and death date as 22 Dec 1894. It also lists his wives as Marion, Sarah, and Minerva.
So, are any of these my Benjamin? I believe that DULL's book makes some incorrect assumptions and actually combines two Benjamin Franklin's information.
Somerset County Death Records have a "B. F. BOYD" who died on 22 Dec 1899 in Ursina, PA. He died at age 58 years (born in Somerset County), and his occupation was a Tailor. His father is listed as Josiah BOYD. He was still married at the time of his death.
I found one child born to B.F. and Marion BOYD:
unnamed female born 28 Mar 1894 in Salisbury, Somerset County, PA. B.F.'s occupation was listed as blacksmith.
I found two children of B.F. and Minerva BOYD:
Lenore M. BOYD born 5 Jul 1896. Again, this B.F.'s occupation is listed as blacksmith.
Robert John (E.) BOYD born 25 Aug 1901 in Salisbury, Somerset County, PA. Again, B.F.'s occupation is listed as blacksmith. Also, someone has since written in Minerva's full name as "Minerva Amanda STRENG" (or STRONG, I could not quite make it out).
In addition to these records, I stopped by my G Grandfather's burial place in Ursina. I found his tombstone (Charles BOYD), and discovered his father's just across the cemetery's driveway. This one was for Benjamin F. BOYD and Drucilla BOYD. This was my Benjamin!!
I believe DULL got the son of Josiah BOYD confused with the "B.F. BOYD" who was married to Marion and Minerva (and apparently a Sarah, as well). This must be the Benjamin F. that Cindy Hoskinson mentions on her GenForum posting. Since my Benjamin died in 1899, he could not have fathered children in 1901 (and beyond)!
Therefore, I am assuming that my Benjamin is the son of Josiah, but his only wife was Drucilla PRITTS. He was born about 1841 in Somerset County, PA, and died on 22 Dec 1899. He is buried in Ursina, Somerset County, PA (in the only public cemetery in that small town).
If anyone has any other information that can confirm (or deny) this information, I would greatly appreciate it. I included the individuals whom I have conversed with this year about this Benjamin, plus I have posted it on the BOYD and Somerset County, PA, mailing lists. Thanks to everyone in advance. Take care and God bless.

Dear Friends -- this is long -- you know where the delete key is.
>Was it plagiarism on David's part. No, he was probably unaware the
Boyd data came from me. <
I believe this is the case most of the time. I don't think people
intentionally set out to "borrow" the work of others. Some of my
material was submitted to a NC library in a family file by a person to
whom I had sent the data. Many years later, another cousin presented me
with his research done in this library -- yep, my work.
Be that as it may -- I have received several *postive* private responses
from those who have read the article. There has been one negative
response which I cannot understand if the person read the article. But
-- I guess every person assimilates words in a different manner.
The following were the points that struck my eye:
Excerpts from: http://www.iigs.org/newsletter/9904news/ethics.htm.en
by By Barbara A. Brown
"To be a Responsible Genealogist is to be honorable, fair, and truthful,
to show respect for your ancestors by presenting a true and complete
picture of their existence, to be fair to your fellow genealogists by
acknowledging their contributions to your research, and to be relentless
in your pursuit of factual data and in the search for the truth."
"Online information may provide you with clues to be checked out - or it
might send you off on a wild goose chase."
"It's a disservice to your ancestors to perpetuate inaccurate information
The final statement was extremely meaningful to me. I am descended from
Hale and Travers families in Virginia. Was I surprised when I read that
my Nicholas Hale married Mary Travers, the daughter of Rawleigh!!! But
-- as Rawleigh is my ancestor and I have done extensive research on him,
I knew Mary Hale was not the daughter of Rawleigh. I will not go into
all the reasons but just state extant wills and other documents prove
Rawleigh's family -- in addition to the fact that Mary Hale and Rawleigh
Travers were of the same age. But I wanted to know why the claim was
made, so I spent additional time tracking down the source of this
mis-statement. I finally found it -- the original author had
misinterpreted a document in the estate of Rawleigh Travers. Because Mary
Hale was listed in the inventory ( along with many other people) of
Rawleigh, the author made the claim she was his daughter. In fact, her
husband, then deceased, was in debt to Rawleigh Travers.
Now, the point of the above is -- I can list numerous internet sites that
list Mary as a Travers. When I sent my proof to one his reply was:
"I am in agreement that Rawleigh Travers is not the father of Mary
Travers. I am going to continue calling her Mary Travers because it
reads better than unknown."
Unfortunately, I have found similar posts on my Boyd family. Because it
was **published** many years ago that a certain man was the father of my
John Boyd, it is a continual struggle to undo that error. I don't know
how many times it has fallen upon me (or one of my cousins) to spend
*our* time supplying the documentation to prove why the original author
was in error because he did not thoroughly research what he
published. In addition, I know of at least three of us who took that
published work and wasted many hours of our time researching the wrong
ancestor. Was not a total waste, :-) , he turned out to be an uncle. I
am also not saying that any published work should be error free -- to me
that is impossible. I am merely saying that each of us should try to be
as careful as possible when we present our work.
My motto is, "It's not soup, yet."
This is a very interesting article:
Interesting page. Let me tell you my experience.
In the early 1980's I came across an ad for "The John Long Family
and "Long's Root Cellar" headed by a Seymour Long.
Since I descend from John Boyd who married Margaret Long, I contacted Seymour
who lived in Margate, Florida just on the off chance our Long's were
They were Indeed!
It was a stroke of luck! Seymour sent me a copy of a letter written in 1851
90 year old Dr. David Long which included notes about my ancestors, John and
Margaret Boyd and listed their children (one of which was my ancestor Abraham
Boyd). I was just elated! This was the first proof I had that Abraham was
the son of John Boyd and Margaret Long and meant that Seymour was a distant
cousin. Later I found more proof in a land deed of 1762 sent to me by James
Matthews a Boyd descendant and cousin.
Seymour and I exchanged information and he wanted to put my Boyd data in his
FTM program. These Boyds were all descendants of John Long so I agreed. I
had spent many years (and money) collecting all this information. Well
Seymour typed it
all in his program and a few weeks later he passed away. I never got a copy
FTM file. Seymour was 83 when he died.
What has all this to do with the above Web page you ask? Well when Seymour
his computers and all of his work (and mine) went to a grandson. The
grandson put Seymour's FTM on a web site a few years later.
As I was surfing the genealogical web 3-4 years ago and came across all this
data. It Was My Family! At first I was excited. "I had found another
cousin"-- or so I thought. The more I inspected the data-- the more the data
looked familiar. Then I
saw an error that only I would have made and more data that I knew was mine.
"who in the heck put this data here"? Fortunately the web site had an email
of the submitter, David Fredenburg the grandson.
I contacted David and he confirmed my suspicions. The data on the Boyds in
the file was mine. Was I upset? At first. But I soon realized that when I
gave the data to Seymour to use in his FTM program I no longer had control
Was it plagiarism on David's part. No, he was probably unaware the Boyd
came from me.
Well, the Wyoming list finished up the marriage list postings. I would
like to thank you all for showing so much interest in the lists and for
being so patient through all my trials and errors!:-) It's been great
A special thanks to all those who e-mailed me personally with such nice
messages....... and also to Steven c. Wehling who on 12 Nov 1999
contributed some "New York, South Dakota, Marriages", Richard Boyd who
posted the "Windam County, Vermont marriages",Linda Lawhon who posted
the "Newton County, Missouri Marriages", and Colin Brooks who posted
some "Pennsylvania Marriages Prior to 1790".....if I've left anyone out
I am very sorry.....it is unintentional you can be sure.
I will continue to add any additional marriages that I come across in my
cyber travels, and hope that you all will continue to add any that you
may find or have. We are lacking in BOYD marriages from the states of
Alaska, Hawaii, New Mexico, Connecticut, and New Hampshire but of course
any additional marriages from any of the states would be greatfully
accepted :-) Our kind and generous list owner, Richard Boyd, has posted
the marriage lists on the CLAN BOYD INTERNATIONAL website for reference
for all BOYD researchers :-).....thank you, Richard!!

I mostly enjoy reading the various postings and seldom contribute much since
I have little information about my Boyd ancestors. However, since genealogy
has become a major hobby for me, I wanted to add my two cents worth. Sources
are always important in any endeavor that involves searching for unknown
information. I have learned that through graduate study to the level of the
doctorate. Sources or documentation as they have been called in the
discussion are illusive the further back one goes in history. (Sometimes we
don't have to get very far back for that to happen.) In some cases they
simply don't exist. That should not discourage us from our quest. There are
times when a preponderance of evidence may be as accurate as a seemingly
first rate source (such as a birth or death certificate). My philosophy in
this matter is to be searching for the source material, but to also value any
information as a possible clue. For that reason I am very grateful for any
and all lists, etc. Please don't let the criticism that a bit of information
is not properly footnoted or documented stop the flow of information. Oh
yes, if anyone can tell me who the parents are of Elizabeth Boyd of Boydton,
Mecklenburg County, VA who married George Farrar on 22 August 1783 I will be
eternally grateful even if you don't have complete sources. :)

Dear Friends and Fellow Scots,
Please allow me to introduce myself and tell you about a beautiful new book
that you might wish to add to your personal library of Scottish material.
My name is T.R. Gordon. I spent four years in Scotland, initially on
assignment with the U.S. Marine Corps and later leading bicycle tours.
During my military time there, I learned to play the bagpipe and traveled all
around the hills and glens, by bicycle and motorcycle. My favorite interests
were the castles and single-track roads that led me to many discoveries off
the beaten path. I continue making return trips every year or two to see old
friends and explore further.
In late 1996, after many months of preparation, I wrote and published my
first coffee-table type book titled
Turas Troimh Alba, A Photographic Journey Through Scotland. (The book's
title translates to "Journey Through Scotland" in the Gaelic language.) It
is a beautiful book, hardbound cover, with 120 pages and 170 color photos,
insightfully narrated with interesting, historical, and amusing text. It is
a delightful overview of Scotland, from the Borders to the Highlands, and
from the East Neuk to the Western Isles. I would like to invite you to check
out my webpage for a sneak peek --
http://hometown.aol.com/kctinto/page/index.htm It will show you several
photos from the book and give a bit of information. If you need additional
information, please feel free to contact me at alba(a)netdoor.com
I've had very favorable reviews and endorsements from sources ranging from
British Heritage magazine to the Duke of Roxburghe. I'm currently doing
freelance work for publications such as Scottish Life magazine. To read a
comprehensive review of my book, look at ---
If you're already thinking about holiday shopping, this could be that unique,
special gift to add a personal touch.
