General Notes: Husband - William Boyd


Born in the north of Ireland, he was of Scotch Presbyterian ancestry. He came to the United States and after trying his fortunes in Virginia and Maryland, came to Pennsylvania, first settling in Northumberland County. There were other Boyds in Virginia, part coming to Pennsylvania and part remaining in Virginia. When they left Northumberland County, the families again separated, some crossing the mountains to Westmoreland County. William Boyd, however, in the winter of 1801 and 1802, in company with Captain John Tracy, and his own sons, David, John and James Boyd, also his three daughters, with James Anderson, the husband of Margaret Boyd (one of the daughters), settled in and about Waterford, Erie County, Pennsylvania.
