This is an updated repost from over a year ago. The new members of the
forum might be able to confirm or otherwise provide information on the
The children of William Hill BOYETT farmed in the vicinity of Lakeland
and Ray City Georgia. Many of his descendants still live in that area
and we hold a reunion each spring. Our efforts so farconfirm our line
only to Jesse BOYET in Duplin Co. NC.

I have extracted data from the BOYT/E-BOYET/T/E NEWSLETTER that could
push our family tree beyond Jesse BOYET in Duplin Co. NC. We welcome
any and all comments regarding the efficacy of the suggested line below,
i.e. William Hill BOYETT to Jesse BOYET to Ephraim BOYET/BOYT to Moses
BOYT to Edward BOYET to Thomas BOYT circa 1700.

Thanks to all, Jody Boyett

NC about 1827 when he purchased 100 acres called Brinson Land. Jesse was
enumerated in Onslow Co. in the 1830 U.S. Census. Since he was not
listed in 1840 in Onslow Co., he had moved, died, or was residing in a
