This stone stands in the huge Evergreen Cemetery of Campbell County, and is a testament to fourteen members of the Boyd family. Rev. Benjamin Boyd was born in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, December 25, 1776. His father was Captain John Boyd, a Revolutionary War soldier. His mother was Mary Fulton. Benjamin was in Kentucky by 1794, when he married Annis Findley on February 18th in Shelby County.
In the 1850 Census of Campbell County Benjamin, 74, is listed with wife Annis, 76, and daughter Eliza, 41. Eliza married twice, but was left a widow with no children.
Frederick is the youngest son of Benjamin and Annis, Eliza and Susan their daughters.
B. Y. is a son of Benjamin and Annis, named for his father. Mary and Henry are two of his children.
Linn Boyd is a son of B. Y. and Ellen. I could find no information for Lee Nora Rust Boyd or Adelia A. Woods. They must have been part of the family!
This woman is also a mystery, but, again, must be a member of the family.
Do you have additional information on the Boyd family?
