  • Notes 
    • From an ancestry.com user-submitted genealogy. Did not have a source so unfortunately the information about the Boyd family is unverified, but appears to be correct as of 8/21/2014.

      Death source citation was Evansville Tribune, of Evansville, Wisconsin for 1/12/1889.

      Reportedly immigrated to lower Canada in 1832. Resided in Michigan in 1834. Resided in Mishawaka, St. Joseph's Indiana. Resided in Wisconsin in 1844. Was naturalized 10/15/1847 in Rock County, Wisconsin.

    • 1880 US Fed'l Census for Union, Rock, Wisconsin lists:
      *Robert Boyd, 69, farmer, born in Ireland. Both parents born in Ireland.
      * Lurain (?) Boyd, age 59 or possibly 69, born in Pennsylvania. Parents are Canadian.
    • 1850 US Fed'l Census for Janesville (west side of Rock River), Rock, Wisconsin:
      * Robert Boyd, age 39, teamster, b. Ireland. .
      * Ellen Boyd, age 28, b. Ireland..

      * Margaret Boyd, age 18. Canada.
      * Jane Boyd, age 16. Michigan.
      * Robert N Boyd, age 3. Wisconsin.
    • There is a Wisconsin Marriage Index, 1820-1907 on Ancestry.com w/ a Robert Boyd married 20 July, 1855 in Dane, Wisconsin. Vol 01 Page 0276. This is a record you have to pay for. :(

      Went to familysearch.org and found the transcripted record in Wisconsin, County Marriages, 1836-1911. Robert Boyd's parents listed as Andrew and Margaret Boyd! Spouse's name is Lucretia Penskeburg (possibly a transcription error?). Her parents are Enoch and Ganny Hard. Married 20 Jul 1855 in Dane, Wisconsin.

    • There is another Robert Boyd b. 1811 in Donegal, Ireland and died 1888 in Coshocton, so this record is his, not my Robert Boyd!

      According to The Coshocton, OHIO Tribune, dated 19 Feb 1950, article regarding Keene Methodist Church Remodeled: "Among the early members were Robert Boyd, Daniel Boyd, John Boyd (brothers), Samuel, George and Thomas Elliot, and Joseph N. Woods. Other members were George and Jane Finlay, Alec and Nancy Finlay, John and Catherine Finlay, Mary Ann and Richard Boyd, William and Catherine Finlay and Mrs. Phoebe Smith."

      Church was organized about 1830 and first Sunday school established about 6 yrs later.
