Prince Georges Boyd families 1790 census

Prince Georges Boyd families 1790 census

Posted: 1196007027000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Boyd, Brashear, Igleheart
The 1790 US Census for Prince Georges, MD, lists at least 6 BOYD families.

1. Abraham ?Colo? BOYD
2. John BOYD
3. Joseph BOYD
4. Thos. BOYD, Sr.
5. Thos. BOYD, Jr.
6. Archibald BOYD

There also appears to be at least 1 Edward BOYD also.

The Igleheart and Brashears families appear to be connected to these BOYDs. They appear to be neighbors, and BOYDs from Prince Georges, MD, married Brashears and Iglehearts.

Joseph BOYD had at least 1 son, William Martin BOYD, who moved to Franklin County, KY, and then to Ralls County, MO.

Does anyone have anymore information on these families? I am most interested in any family potential relations between these BOYD families and any information on Joesph BOYD.

Thanks ahead of time for any information!

There are many more marriages. I stopped at 1800 in MD Marriages. As you can see, the same names were given in several counties, so I think the same family appeared in the Baltimore - Anne Arundel - Prince George's Co. area, and then some moved west.
