I tried to get access to your BOYD message after I transcribed a letter about William Boyd's service, but I could not. So I looked up your messages and will try to post it here.

Sadly GenForum will no longer notify me or anyone whenever someone replies to messages.

HeritageQuest is a service that some libraries subscribe to. If your library has a contract, and if you are a member, all you will need to do is visit their site and type in your library card's bardcode to read William Boyd's application.

       In response to your letter of the 18th instant, I have to advise you that from the papers in the Revolutionary War pension claim S. 8084, it appears that William Boyd was born in Hanover County, Virginia. 1756 or 1757, and while residing in Louisa County, Virginia, enlisted and served as follows.

In 1779, as a Private two months in Captain Lee's Company, Colonel Harrison's Regiment. May 1781, as a Private two months in Captain Philip's Company, Colonel Reuben Lindsay's Regiment. August 1781 to January 1788 served as an Express. He was at an engagement at Jamestown.
