Requesting information on the parents of Nathan Willliam Boyd. He was born 4 Aug 1845 in Barbour County, Alabama and died 19 Nov 1905. He appears on the 1860 Census with the family of George T. Loftis. He went by the name of Tony Loftis until he became an adult and then he began using his Boyd name again. Family legend says Nathan’s father was “a horse thief and a gypsy and was going to be hanged, but his friends got him out of jail and he absconded across the Mississippi into Texas.”
I am searching for information on my Grandparents Who were born in Northern Ireland in 1870 & 1876 my grandfathers name was Hugh & my Grandmothers name was Sarah [ born McLean] we know that her Father was in charge of the Waterworks in Holywood near Belfast when they were married & her mothers name was McKeen
In 1894 Grandad was in the 16th Inniskilling Fusiliers stationed in Burma not known for how long but we do know for how long
In 1923 the family migrated to Australia in 1923 with their only son named William Upon arrival here they moved to the Far
North Coast of New South Wales where they lived until he passed in 1941 & Granny passed in 1951
Any information would be gratefully received & be forever grateful thank you Hugh Boyd
I require some help in establishing where my 4x great grandfather was from I have found information on familysearch.org suggesting that he was living in the All Saints parish in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1779, however I have seen a census in 1841 with the correct wife of Jane stating that he was from Yorkshire. I know that he married Jane Lumsden on 15/07/1804 at All Saints in Newcastle upon Tyne. He had 6 children 3 of which I have dates of birth for. Thomas b. 01/07/1806, Mary b. 05/09/1808 and John b. 10/02/1811, The baptisms for Thomas & Mary both state that he was Tailor and he came from Tanfield in County Durham.I have checked the Parish Register for Tanfield and also the Parish Register of All Saints and there is no record of him in either. There is also a suggestion that he may have been Scottish.
