Surnames: Boyd, Pickett


I am related to William Boyd, Hopalong Cassidy. William Boyd was my great grandmother's brother. My great grandmother was named Goldie Boyd. However the Boyd family disowned Goldie because she married an Indian named Mylus Pickett. They had nineteen children. My grandmother was named Nellwood Pickett. She had a twin brother Elwood. William Boyd was the only member of the Boyd family that visited Goldie. He brought her items from his movies as gifts.

This is my first attempt to get in touch with Willam Boyd's family.

Thank you
