Mini Biographies of Scots and Scots Descendants (B)
John Boyd

Richard Boyd in his StudyMy ancestor, John Boyd came to Boston circa 1720 where he married Margaret Long on 11 April 1731. He had five sons, John Jr., Abraham, Samuel, David, and William.  Abraham settled in Wilmington, Vermont.  His son Luther Jr., went west to Columbus, Ohio circa 1820. His son Luther Boyd Jr., farmed in Ohio. His son Richard Boyd went to Peru, Indiana circa 1907. My grandfather, George S. Boyd was an engineer and followed the oil wells in Louisiana, and Texas during the heyday of oil exploration. He came to Michigan during the Depression of the 1930s where other relatives lived. My father Mancell Lee Boyd worked at a defense factory during and after World War II. I live in Rogers City, Michigan (at the top of the mitten) am retired, and enjoy searching my family history and everything Scottish. I believe John Boyd (above) is a son of Capt. James Boyd who was born in Dumfrieshire, Scotland in 1669, younger son of the 1st Earl of Kilmarnock.  If you think you are connected to these Boyds, please contact me.  I also maintain the Clan Boyd Society web site at:
