Thank you for your efforts in search of information on Eleanor Herr
In the meantime, I have been having some books printed for a missionary
friend under the name Polyventure Publications, so I had her 1918 book,
The Gospel in Genesis, reprinted. If you want a copy just
send me a mailing address and how many, and I will get them in the mail
Next week I hope to put the book on Amazon.com and contact some book
distributors. In the meantime, as of today it is displayed on my
I will also send a free copy to the first 15 who e-mail and identify
themselves as part of the Clan Boyd Society, International. Anyone
after those first 15 can have the book for $6.00 including shipping
(do not request via paypal, but e-mail directly to polypubs(a)hctc.com).
Just an offer, and act of appreciation to a great bunch of people who
have a great woman of God for an ancestor.

I received this on another list and when checking I found a
number of men listed with the surname BOYD. Maybe this will
breakdown a brick wall for someone. Keep in mind that the First
Alabama Calvary was a unit of the Union Army and served during the
time known as the Civil War, although I don't know what was "civil"
about it. Sincerely, Jim Allen.

I am trying to find an Ebenezer Boyd born 1814 somewhere in Virginia and his wife Matilda, born 1820 somewhere in Virginia. The National Genweb search engine is down right now and as there are about 100 counties in Virginia, there is no practical way for me to search them.
Their oldest child, Emily Jane Boyd was born in Virginia in 1838, so I am assuming they were there until they moved to Ohio by 1840. Thank you for any help you can give. Judith Jones
