The Boyd Clan and Related FamiliesI 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.
