Looking for information on parents of Susan Frances Boyd Cox
« on: Monday 11 July 22 01:14 BST (UK) »
My ggreatgrandmother was Susan Frances Boyd, born to John W Boyd and Harriet Frances ? in Cartahage(?) Missouri in 1853. I'm trying to find the birth information of Susan's parents as well as the maiden name of her mother. The 1850 census lists both parents a being born in Kentucky. Harriet appears to have later married to a Dodson after John Boyd died. If anyone has any concrete information on this family, I would really appreciate finding more. Thank you.

Welcome to Rootschat

A tree on Ancestry has Harriet as Dodson when she married Boyd.  Where did you see a remarriage for Harriet Boyd to a Dodson?

I think it is Carthage Missouri.

Here is a Wiki link that also gives some info about the US Civil War there.
