Background on Boynton, GA

Does anyone know the background of the naming of the communities of Boynton and East Boynton? Or the road, cemetery, methodist church, etc.? I've looked at what historical information I've been able to find on the Internet, but couldn't find anything about the origin of the naming. My dad told me years ago that there was a branch of our family in Georgia that started when one of two Boynton brothers came to Georgia as part of the original settlers who had been released from debtor's prison. The other brother settled in Massachusetts. I'm wondering if there's any connection.
