 Recently I was given a Boyd family of County Antrim that started with

 Daniel A. BOYD
 b. 23 Feb 1799, County Antrim, N. Ireland
 d. 18 May 1878, Andover, Allegany, New York
 ado.
& Jane WHITE
 b. 27 Jan 1801, County Antrim, N. Ireland
 d. 18 Feb 1881, Andover, Allegany, New York
 ado.
 m.
 Daniel BOYD
 b. 12 Aug 1844, County Antrim, N. Ireland
 d. 8 Jan 1894, Andover, Allegany, NY
 ado.
& Jennie Clisdell WHITE
 b. 4 Aug 1849, South Howard, Steuben, New York
 d. 8 Jan 1900, Andover, Allegany Co, NY
 ado.
 m. 8 Oct 1868, NY

 There was no location within County Antrim given or know for this family.
 Do any members know of this Boyd and White family?

 I would also assume that Daniel Boyd, the son, from his date of birth, was
 the younger half of this family.

Hello All,
   It has been a while since I have posted on this Daniel Boyd b/1799, County Antrim, Ireland.  One huge item I failed to mention.  I strongly feel this Daniel Boyd is somehow related to our Boyds of New Windsor, NY., and this is why. 
   In my family line. one Robert R. Boyd, b/1771, New Windsor, NY, who had a son, Robert R. Boyd b/ about 1818, in New York.  Just about the same time, these two families (Robert Boyd and Daniel Boyd) moved to Andover, Allegany County, NY.  In 1865, according to an agricultural report, Robert R. Boyd Jr. and Daniel Boyd, b/ 1799, in Ireland, living with wife Jane, 1802, were neighbors.  There was just one farm between their two farms.  Coincidence, possible, but I truly feel this Daniel Boyd is a cousin of our Boyd's of New Windsor. 
   Finding his father, would probably lead us to locating our missing father to our siblings from New Windsor, NY.
   We have positive proof, our family has left a footprint in Ballyhalbert, County Down, Ireland.  We can match several baptismal records to children of the siblings.  We also have a church record from Little Britain, Orange County, NY, where one sibling (Robert Boyd), gave his birth location as Ballyhalbert, Ireland.
   If anyone is related to this Daniel Boyd or any of the Boyds from New Windsor, please reply.

William Boyd

Thank you Bally G for all your information.  We will go over what you sent in hopes we do find something new.

  Here is another interesting tidbit that may also be of interest. 

   The Boyd's of Middletown, NY, its elder Boyd was named Robert Boyd.  He was probably born in Scotland, then moved to Northern Ireland, possibly Belfast, before coming to America, first arriving in Philadelphia, then settling in Middletown, NY.  In Middletown, he lost his entire family, except one daughter, to illness.  He then moved to New Windsor.  Why New Windsor?  Was it because he was related in some way to our New Windsor Boyds? 
   In New Windsor, he married Sarah Lyons Hunter, widow of Robert Hunter.  Turns out, Sarah was the sister to a Mary Lyons, wife of Samuel Boyd of our New Windsor Boyds.  Samuel was born in 1734, Ballyhalbert, Ireland.  He was the son of James Boyd, b/ about 1705, either Scotland or Ireland, my 5x great grandfather.  So was this Robert Boyd, a cousin to our New Windsor Boyds.
   Now we know that many Boyds immigrated to Ireland in the early 1600s.  Some received lands from Montgomery, and others from Hamilton.  It was possible, cousins were given lands in different Counties, and some even reconnected when they moved to America.

   I believe that Daniel Boyd of Antrim, Robert Boyd from Belfast, and the New Windsor Boyd, are all related.  When and if we can locate one of the fathers of these three Boyd families, we will unravel a huge Boyd Clan. 
   This is just an opinion at this point, but I sure feel fairly strong about the possible connections.

You are doing more than most to secure your ancestry as far as it can be traced. Well done. Sometime  when too many brickwalls surround you, you should relax into the" its time for others to take over."   Sooner or later someone will find one further pip and be amazed at how far you got. All that of course hasnt happened to me aged 81 so perhaps the answer is never give up, it keeps the brain active and is more useful than crosswords and more satisfying.  Good luck  Bally....G

Bally G.
   Thank You for the kind words, but it is not just me.  We have a team of about 8 to 10 members, all very good in their research.  A few have written books, and out contact in Ireland has over 46 years of research experience. 
   Mike Boyd from Australia is also onboard with us and keeping us focused on our goals so we do not wondering off too bad.  He has the toughest job.  We feed off each other, it is amazing when one member finds a small clue, how much information this team can generate from a small clue.
   If anyone has Boyd kin from County Down, there is a good chance we can help.
   Thanks again Bally G, I hope to keep in touch with anything we may find of importance.

   If there is any Keown-Boyd families out there, contact us as we have seemed to unraveled  their family in County Down.

Hi all,
I read with interest of the Boyd Manuscripts. Has anyone every seen these or ordered these?
David Boyd of Kilkeel is my GGG Grandfather and he married a Margaret Blackwood sometime before 1800.
I wonder if it's worth trying to get a copy to see if his family tree is listed in these manuscripts?

Thanks
