Yes, I have a line through Coryell County Texas. Yes, from Montgomery County, Alabama
originally. This line goes through Edmond Boyd in South Carolina where I've been
stuck on his father; Robert Boyd (subject of other inquiries).
My grandfather, William Roy Boyd, Sr., was born in Gatesville, Coryell County, Texas on 1
Mar 1884 (see attached family bible page scans, page 3). William Roy Boyd's father is
James W. Boyd (b. 1855, d. 1922; native of Texas). James W. Boyd is the son of Captain
When Walter O. Boyd was born on November 1, 1827, in Montgomery, Alabama, his father,
Walter, was 30 and his mother, Letitia, was 27. He married Margaret E Moseley on August
19, 1848, in Texas. They had ten children in 30 years. He died on December 18, 1907, in
Gilmer, Texas, having lived a long life of 80 years, and was buried there.
All of this can be find on my public Ancestry Tree ("Boyd Vasconcellos").

Good morning all
It would appear that “several” of William Boyd and Rebecca Sellers children moved in the
1850’s to Coryell County, Texas.
Are there any people on this list researching Boyd families from this County?
And did or could these families come from Montgomery or Pike Counties in Alabama.
Thank you for your assistance.
NOTE: Use the data on this list as a finding tool, just as you would any other secondary
source. When you find the name of an ancestor listed confirm the facts in original
