Added the McDaniel family, beginning with Edward McDaniel (1753 - 1824), Revolutionary War soldier. Edward's daughter, Mary McDaniel, married William Boyd, the son of Alexander and Martha Boyd.


Added information on the Hall family (Sarah Hall married Nathaniel Carrington). Earliest ancestor is John Hall b. 1735, Scotland; d. 1784 Orange County, NC.

Updated the surname trees with additional people and revised format.


Added several generations of Carringtons, back to John Carrington, born in Barbados in 1733. There is still much research to be done on the Carringtons, for which there are descendants in TN, MS, AR, and TX as well as NC.

This web site is about the Boyd Family that lives in Tipton County, Tennessee. It traces the history of the family from William Boyd who immigrated to South Carolina from Ireland before the Revolutionary War through the migration from South Carolina to Mississippi and then to Tennessee, as well as other branches of the family. It attempts to address all of the descendants of William Boyd. In addition to the Boyds, families of Margaret Ford (including Lowrey and Ford) and Kathryn Edwards are included, although in less detail, currently.

The major surnames included are Boyd, Black, Carrington, Edwards, Ford, Lowrey, McQuiston, and Simonton. Here is a complete list of Surnames.

Family Tree, under the Family Tree menu above is a comprehensive genealogical package that contains all of the genealogy information that I currently have including photos, documents and cemeteries. This is the best place to find information on anyone.

The surname tree, also found under the Family Tree menu tab shows the surnames of all of the direct ancestors of a particular person. At this time, there is a surname tree of the Children of William and Beryl Black Boyd, and for the children of Tom and Harriet Lowrey Ford.

All of the information on this site has been filtered to eliminate detailed information on living persons in order to protect their privacy. If you would like access to the unfiltered information, request a userid from the Family Tree page or please contact me directly.
