Boyds of County Donegal Ireland in Holmes County Ohio
Posted by: mary (ID *****2236) Date: June 03, 2004 at 04:06:41

I am searching for any leads that may help to locate the parents of my gr. grandmother Margaret Boyd.
According to her Obituary she was born in County Donegal Ireland on 3, May 1806, at either the age of 6 (1812) or age of 12 (1818) (depending which article you read) she came to america with her parents (unknown) and the family settled near Holmes County Ohio.
By 1825 Margaret Boyd married Lyman Shaffer in Coshocton County Ohio. I am hoping someone out there has information on Boyd families who were in these areas in Ohio, Any help or direction someone could provide would be greatfully appreciated.
Thanks for any help in advance.
