Mary Ann Edwards, sister of Claiborn Basil Edwards, Sr., married John Boyd on Nov. 7, 1801, Halifax Co., Va. Her death was in 1846. Name given at time of her marriage was "Polly Edwards." Two children were born of this marriage: Amey Boyd m. Claiborn Thaxton on July 31, 1827, Halifax Co., Va., and Richard Boyd, b. abt. 1804, Halifax Co., Va.; d. Nov. 8, 1892, m. Dianna Faulkner (b. abt. 1817; d. 1891) on Oct. 30, 1832, Halifax Co., Va.

Claiborn Basil Edwards, Sr. (d. Dec. 1844, Warren Co, Ky.; burial unmarked grave on Mitchell McCoy's Farm, Warren Co., Ky.) and Mary Ann Edwards were children of William Edwards and Elizabeth Barksdale.

I have not researched John Boyd but would not be surprised if he is not of my "Boyd" line i.e. Patrick Boyd m. (1.) Rachel Grissom; (2) Ann Douglas. Patrick was a son of George Boyd, Sr. and Isabella, and had 5 siblings: James, Mary, Robert, John, and George, Jr. My line, Patrick Boyd m. Ann Douglass bet. 1751-52 Halifax Co., Va.
