My great, grandfather, the Rev. Adlai Boyd (son of John, son William), born in 1804 in Iredell Co., NC, d. 1881, Muhlenberg Co., KY, was initially married to Johanna Cessna, who bore him 4 children (one of whom was Sylvanus Boyd). After Johanna died, Adlai, then 60, he married a 20 year old Almira J. M. Boyd, who bore him 4 more children, one of whom was my Grandfather, Robert Adlai Boyd, who sired my father (and a childless son, Adlai Boyd), Robert Ulrich Boyd, who sired me: Lowe Adlai Boyd. I, in turn, named my first son Adlai Boyd, II., after my uncle Adlai Boyd. When the Rev. Adlai Boyd died, Almira and her children must have migrated somewhere, but I have found no trace of them.
Incidently, the name "Adlai" is in the Bible once (I Chronicles: 27:29). The Rev. Adlai Boyd was born on the 4th Creek in Iredell Co, NC, near what is now Statesville, NC. He, and Adlai Ewing (progenitor of the Adlai Ewing Stevensons of Illinois) were brought into this world by a Dr. Adlai Oliver, hence were named after him. The Ewings and the Boyds are at least kin by marriage, I'm told.
I am searching for any trace of Almira J. M. Boyd and/or her progeny.
I have found an Adlai C. Boyd who died in California in 1954, which seems a tie in, since the name Adlai was particular to this branch of the Boyds, but I have been unable to trace him further. He may, or may not, have been Almira's child or grandchild.
Any help or light would be deeply appreciated.

Dear Boyd researchers and cousins,
The following are obits and marriages of various Boyds which appeared in the
Atlanta Constitution (the newspaper for Atlanta, Georgia) from 1925 to 1927. I
added notes to those I knew. I would appreciate it (and I'm sure all Boyd
researchers would too) if any who are related or connected to these Boyds could
add their research notes. I have done others and am in the process of preparing
them for the list too. I bope this is helpful for many. Rich, if you like,
please feel free to add these to the Web site.

MRS. ALICE BOYD
Mrs. Alice Boyd, 41, of 307 Thompson Street, East Point, died Tuesday at
a local hospital. She is survived by her husband, W.M. Boyd; two sons, J.W.

Ga., and two brothers, M.A. Duncan of Hewlett, Ga., and Wesley Duncan, of
[Note: W.M. Boyd, husband of Alice Duncan Boyd, was Walter Monroe Boyd, the
son of George White Boyd and Mary E. Pope, the grandson of Hugh Boyd and Nancy
Hopper, and the great-grandson of Robert Boyd and Rosannah Stewart of
Newberry, SC and Meriwether Co., GA. I believe Alice's daughter called "Alline" should
actually be "Irene." Alice's sister, Mary E. Duncan, married Walter Monroe
Boyd's brother, James Martin Boyd.]

MISS McCOY TO WED MR. MANGHAM AT DRUID HILLS BAPTIST
The marriage of Miss Lillie McCoy and David Boyd Mangham will take place
on June 26 at 5 o'clock at the Druid hills Baptist church. The ceremony will
be performed by Dr. F.C. McConnell, pastor. The bride will be given in marriage
by her father, Mr. Charles Jefferson McCoy.
The ushers will be Douglas Mangham, Sam Mangham, Dr. Percy Lambright, and
Eugene C. Clarke, Jr.
Miss Emily Boyd, of Griffin, Ga., beautiful cousin of the groom, will be
the only brides-maid. Little Opal Morris, cousin of the bride, will be the
flower girl. Miss McCoy is the second daughter of Charles Jefferson McCoy well
known business man formerly of Monroe, Gal., and the late Mrs. Alice Prather
McCoy, of Texarkana, Texas.
David Boyd Mangham is the youngest son of John Woodward Mangham, Sr., and
Miss Olive Boyd Mangham, formally (sic) well known and prominent residents of
Griffin. Mr. Mangham is a graduate of Tech High school and attended Tech in
the class of 1920.
In 1922, Mr. Mangham became interested in the manufacture of high grade
candies and is well known and popular with hosts of friends.
John Woodward Mangham, Jr., will be his brother's best man.
Mr. Mangham and his bride will leave immediately after the ceremony for a
two-weeks' trip to the mountains. On their return they will reside with Mr.
Mangham's parents at 645 W. Peachtree.
[Note: David Boyd Mangham and his cousin, Emily Boyd, are descendants of
Milton Boyd and Jane Douglas Boyd of Chester Co., SC and Meriwether County, GA. I
believe researchers will find that most, if not all, of the Boyds living in
the Griffin, Ga. area in the late 1800s and early 1900s were descended from
Milton and Jane Boyd. Griffin is in Spalding County and Spalding is adjacent to
Meriwether County where Milton and Jane resided.--JK]

GEORGE G. BOYD DIES AT FAIRBURN HOME
Fairburn, Ga., February 13 — (Special.) — George G. Boyd, 34, prominent
groceryman here, died today following a week's illness of pneumonia.
He is survived by his widow and three young children. Funeral services
will be held Suunday afternoon at Bethany Methodist church.
He was a member of the Fairburn quartette, and was well known throughout
this section of Georgia.
[Note: This was George Gardner Boyd, son of James LaFayette Boyd and Mary L.
(Molly) Harper, and the grandson of James Boyd and Amelia (Milly) Tidwell who
married in Meriwether County, GA. in 1831. James Boyd came with his father,
John "Wagonner Jack" Boyd from Newberry, SC to Meriwether Co., GA about 1828 and
lived in lot 265 right on the Flint River separating Meriwether and Pike
Counties. Wagonner Jack was the son of John "Buckles" Boyd and Margaret Wilson.
John "Buckles" father, of course, is said to be John Boyd of Ballymena, County
Antrim, Ireland, and Newberry Co., SC. Unless I have missed some communication
somewhere, I don't believe any hard proof has ever been found that definitely
says those children generally accepted to be John Sr.'s children are actually
his. However, proof has been found linking David, Hugh, and John Boyd (Jr.) as
brothers. There is some evidence showing that Elizabeth Boyd Spence may have
been their sister, and she is generally accepted as John's daughter. I still
maintain that enough evidence exists to link my Robert as another son of John

I spent some time looking at the Archives and Boyd connections. After
further review, it looks great but requires more follow-up. Pennsylvania is doing a
good job getting their colonial records online and accessible. Given the
cost of travel, food, lodging to do it on site I believe the cost of copies is
well worth the money.
The records are very extensive and relatively specific. You need to look
at the specific county and the whole state. More importantly, remember these
are only patents and warrents and not actual deed records which are located at
the specific county courthouses.
I am enclosing a list for those I found. I focused on Northampton, Bucks,
Philadelphia, Chester and Lancaster. We should also list the initial outlying
counties like Montgomery, Cumberland and Northumberland. Descendants of
George Boyd of Lancaster and Chester should spend a little money and find out
what is in those warrants. All the 1730-1750 warrants should be looked at to
figure out who the early Boyd's were and their relations.
Unfortunately, this is not my Boyd family. I just live here :) Those of
you who have family here in PA circa 1700 need to "pick up the ball and run
with it". I don't mind getting you started, but I'm wasting my time digging
through these records for non-family records. Of course, if someone wants to
PAY me then I'll be happy to spend the necessary time.
