Heman Boyd (1), son of James Boyd and Betsy Hastings was born in
Wilmington, Vermont, on 16 Dec 1806. He died in Manhattan Kings County,
New York in 1870. "Heman Boyd would have been three years old when the
1810 census was taken. In that year Wilmington had four families with a
male child under 10.
These were Luther, David, James, and Stephan. Of these only James
remains in Wilmington for the 1820 and 1830 census. Since he and his
mother inherited his father's farm, it is not too surprising that he
would remain in town. All of Stephan's children were entered in the
Congregational Church records after he was killed by a falling tree in
1814. None is named Heman. Luther is another of Abraham's sons. Neither
David nor Luther are very good candidates for Hemans's father in that
neither appear in the 1820 or 1830 Wilmington (or Vermont) census but
Heman is definitely still in Wilmington in the early 1830's. So James is
the best choice (as father of Heman). We know little about him. There is
no probate or death record and no gravestone in Wilmington".
Heman married (2) Julia Atherton Fox, daughter of Amos Fox and Philanda
McCOY, 13 Oct 1831 in Wilmington. She was born 28 March 1810 in
Wilmington. She died on 25th Oct 1861 in New York.
