Home Line

Many members of my family are buried in the Upper Octorara
Cemetery at Parkesburg, Chester Co., PA. My late father, John
Lemuel Boyd, told me that he often visited this cemetery with
his grandmother, Sara Matilda Airgood. She told my father,
"All of the Boyds buried here are related to us."

I apologize for the length of my entry, but this is the first
time that I have written down my family history in this form.
My own lineage is written down in a similar manner as a
membership application for the D.A.R. I hope all of this isn't
too difficult to follow. Also, I hope some of these names
"ring a bell" with someone reading this!
