Mark Boyd's Family Web Pages.

The Boyd Clan and Related Families

I am a descendent of Joseph Boyd Jr. He lived in Maryland and moved to Ohio around 1814. He eventually settled in Southern Marion County, Ohio about 1821. He died in December 18, 1846. I have a copy of his will here.

His father was Joseph Boyd. Here is a document that gives the most comprehensive history of Joseph Boyd's family and his descnedents that I've seen. It is by Andrew Boyd of Lake Arrowhead, California.

I have a letter written in March, 1849, by George Boyd just before he was killed at Camp Salado, near San Antonio in Texas while serving in the U.S. Army. He references the gold rush in California.

Other Boyd Web Sites that I'm aware of:
