Subject: [CLANBOYD] Walter Eugene Boyd (1861/71 to 1926)
We are trying to find information about our Great Grandfather, Walter Eugene
Boyd. He was born on Dec 26 in either 1861 or 1871 in Texas (possibly Dallas
or Waco). He died in 1926 in Los Angeles, CA. According to his death
certificate his father was Walter Boyd (b: abt 1841), in Louisiana, and his
mother was Mary Spruce (b: abt 1835) in Texas.
Walter E. Boyd was a minor in Nevada, working for many years in Rhyolite, NV
where he added an "E" to their last name (Boyed), reportedly so their mail
would come to the right place. We have very little information about him
prior to 1899 when he married Anna Louise Mullens in Mercur, UT (another
mining town). He and Anna had 10 children (Helen, Ruth, Lee, Walter, Dora,
Aggie, Henry, Victor, James, and Mary Jane).
We would really like to learn more about our Boyd family, before 1899. If
anyone has any information, please let us know.
