Descendants of Edward Boyd,Sr
Generation No. 1
1. EDWARD1 BOYD,SR was born Abt. 1775 in Virginia. He married WILMOUTH ?. She was born Abt. 1775.
Notes for EDWARD BOYD,SR:
Documentation has been found that suggests that both Edward and Wilmouth
died before the three boys reached their majorities, and that a Captain
Morgan Hopson was appointed as guardian for the boys and moved them to
Kentucky. Morgan Hopson did indeed live in Trigg County,Kentucky. In June
of 1832 he received a Kentucky land warrant of 50 acres in Trigg County
that featured the Cumberland River as its watercourse. Based on the laws
governing the purchase and distribution of land in effect at the point in
time ($20.00 per 100 acres), Morgan probably paid about $10.00 for his
Morgan Hopson and his wife , Ann Wells were married June 11, 1828
Christian Co,Ky and was found in the 1850 Census of Trigg County as
656 Hopson Morgan 63 Farmer VA
Ann 47 VA
At this writing, the guardianship of Morgan Hopson concerning the three
Boyd boys, Edward Jr, George and Robert, can be neither confirmed nor
denied. It should be noted however, that Morgan's first wife was one
Nancy W Boyd. Morgan and Nancy were married on April 4, 1811 in Halifax
County,VA. It is unknown if Nancy is an Aunt or otherwise related to the
three Boyd boys.
