While searching for my Boyd family info I discovered the following
DAR information and hope it will help someone in their search. Jim Allen.
Boyd, James, b. 1763, Lancaster, PA., d. 1854, Newton Co.,
Miss. Grave located in Chism Family Cemetery on the Van Henry Farm
on Highway 494 near Union, Newton Co., Miss. Marked 13 April 1978,
I have just joined the House of Boyd in hopes of finding cousins and
ancestors and to understand more about their lives and motives for
coming to the United States.
I've been trying to find more information on John Boyd who supposedly
was born in 1803 in Marketown, Tyrone, Ireland and died Jan 15 1853
in Oakdale, Washington, Illinois. I do know he is buried in the
Oakdale Cemetery. His wife was Nancy Ann Carson born 1806 in Ireland
and died Mar 1 1860 in Oakdale, Washington, Illinois, also buried in
Oakdale Cemetery. According to your website they were married in
Does anyone have a lead on this particular John Boyd? He would have
been my gggrandfather. Thanks for your help.
OneWorldTree lists a David BOYD and Elizabeth WILEY as the parents of
Margaret (birth info not listed) and James Young BOYD (born about 1788 in
North Carolina.) OneWorldTree also lists several children of James Young
BOYD: Tempy Ann, Elizabeth, Delilah, Colonel Hopson (or Hobson), James
Young, Jr, John Alexander, Martin W and Thomas H. This BOYD family appears
to have migrated from North Carolina to South Carolina to Georgia. This
family appears to have been in Hall County, Georgia, around the time Hall
County was formed in 1818.
Information posted to this list before connects John (born about 1785 in
NC), Bruce (Born 1794 in NC) and Alexander (born 1801 in SC) and likely a
William W as brothers. Bruce and Alexander lived in Hall County, GA, in
1820. Two William BOYDs exist on the 1820 GA census in Hall County. John
BOYD had children born in Indiana in 1818 and 1820 according to later census
data. Arkansas tax lists list John and Alexander BOYD in St. Francis County,
Arkansas between 1828 and 1832. Finally, John, Bruce, Alexander along with a
reported son of William- Wiley arrive with Elijah HULSEY (born 1804 in
Franklin County, GA) in Izard County (soon to become Carroll County),
Arkansas, in 1833.
This leads me to two questions:
1. What connection might be established between David BOYD and John,
Bruce, Alexander and William? Are they possibly brothers of James Young
2. Have any of David BOYD's descendants (James Young BOYD's
descendants) participated in the BOYD- Y-DNA project?
Thanks ahead of time for input and discussion.
