Don't trust these guys (not NEHGS but the original index) as a good source.
They have no genealogical proof attached to there records so they could be way
off. No other Adam Boyd-minister is in this area and Samuel is clearly his
son from both records. For vitals specifics I would rely on better primary or
secondary records.

The First WOULD APEAER TO BE the last child of Rev Adam Boyd of:-

R2 Adam Boyd, b 1692 (Ballymoney, Co. Antrim), d 23/11/1768 (Parkesburg,
Chester Co. PA), bu United Congregation of Upper Octorara, Lancaster Co.,
PA, m 23/10/1725 ( , ), Jane Creaghead/Craighead, dau of Rev Thomas and
Margaret (nee Wallace) Creaghead, of White Clay, b 17xx (Ireland), d
9/11/1779 ( ), bu and had issue:-

S11 Samuel Boyd, b 11/6/1747 ( , Chester Co. PA), d 1790 ( ), bu , m 17xx
( , ), ??? Brooks, dau of Col. Brooks, of VA., b 17xx ( ), d 18xx ( ), bu ,
and had issue:- ?

[Lived: ]

- Entered Mr. McDowell's school at Elk in the summer of 1760, and became a
Jean McClymport student in the College of Philadelphia in 1764. He entered
on the practice of medicine, and removed to Virginia.

The notation below said "Death: 1783" which is not consistant with the
above information.

So do I have the wrong Adam Boyd's family or is the date of death wrong?

Do any of our Virginia Researchers have an Samuel Boyd and a Miss Brooks as
the head of their family?

Thank you

Mike Boyd
