Hi Karen: Your messages have to be sent in plain text, not multipart/alternative (HTML) or Rootsweb bounces them. I am leaving your original on as I know it did not go to the list. Mike's computer can read Word files or Family Tree Maker (FTW) files as he does have a copy of the software. Probably Adobe Acrobat as well. He uses Word for what he does and it would be the easiest for him to be able to lift text and copy into his file. A pdf file would not, usually, generally, allow him to lift the text and

Don't trust these guys (not NEHGS but the original index) as a good source. They have no genealogical proof attached to there records so they could be way off. No other Adam Boyd-minister is in this area and Samuel is clearly his son from both records. For vitals specifics I would rely on better primary or secondary records.

So far my husband's 67 marker DNA sample has not matched any other DNA sample in the database, Boyd or otherwise.? We had hoped and are still hoping for a match since he is the only son of an only son of an only son whose father died when my husband's grandfather was very young. We have hit a brick wall in finding out who his relatives were.? He was a miner, John Henry Boyd,? who left PA in late 1880's and moved to Jerome AZ .?

11. Re: [BOYD] just found this - Alexander Boyd of Augusta Co., VA - 1761 [1]
Mike, I suspect that the first Alexander (in Karen's number one) is a different Alexander. That would very possibly be the Alexander who lived in Augusta, Wythe and Pulaski Counties. However, the number two I believe might be the same Alexander as the Boydton, Virginia fellow. See this map Click on 1764. Mecklenburg is about to be formed that year, from Lunenburg. As far as the family link with the Halifax Boyds, it is hard to guess whether there is on

Hi Joyce. My great-grandfather James Edward Boyd participated in one of the "Runs" into Oklahoma in the early 1890's, along with my grandfater James William Boyd. My mother Cyntha Cecil Boyd was born in Ryan, Indian Territory in 1906, and I was born in Maud, Oklahoma in 1940. My grandparents were married in the church at Avoca, Oklahoma Territory in 1897.

Anyway, Clan Currie visit our Highland Games every year and have stron

Sorry a slip of the finger. Only 100 years off, Should have been 1788. My point was that there was a William Boyd in the 1790 Census in very close proximity to Allegheny County.
