Charlotte form just outside of Sydney, Australia has snet me this information.

I coould not see any William Boyd's in the Allegheny Co, PA 1790 Census. So this may indicate the family came there between 1790 and 1794, which may help to identify teh Boyd family.

Thank you

I have just checked the 1790 US Census. Whoever Beaver County, PA was not
formed until 1800 from Allegheny and Washington Counties.

The Census return for these two counties in 1790 were:-

BOYD,David PA Co:Allegheny Twp:Elizabeth
BOYD,Mary PA Co:Allegheny Twp:Elizabeth
BOYD,Nathaniel PA Co:Allegheny Twp:Elizabeth
BOYD,Robert PA Co:Allegheny Twp:Unknown
BOYD,Thomas PA Co:Allegheny Twp:Unknown
BOYD,Peolly PA Co:Allegheny Twp:Unknown
BOYD,Thomas PA Co:Allegheny Twp:Unknown
BOYD,Robert PA Co:Allegheny Twp:Unknown


BOYD,William PA Co:Washington Twp:unknown
BOYD,Dugal PA Co:Washington Twp:Unknown
BOYD,John PA Co:Washington Twp:Unknown


So Agnes Boyd MAY COME FROM ONE OF THESE 11 FAMILIES or she may have come
from a family that arrived between 1790 and 1811.

This may help anyone sho is searching for her.

Subject: [BOYD] Agnes Boyd


Whilte researching my husband's Boyd line I came across a book that might be
of interest to someone on the list. The book is titled "Monongahela Valley
Family Records Vol. I"
This book contains several different families in it. The one that caught my
attention was the chapter titled "History of Peter West and Descendants
1765 - 1956."

Apparently Peter West married Agnes Boyd in 1811. That is all the
information it has on Agnes. There is extensive information about Peter and
Agnes' decendants. If there is anyone related to this line, I would be happy
to share provide information. I was trying to figure out who Agnes' parents
are. It appears that Peter and Agnes settled in Beaver County, PA.
