YOUNG BOYD was born in this precinct on May 8, 1835, and is a son of James and Elizabeth (Long) Boyd. The father was born in Virginia and the mother in South Carolina. The father came to this county with his parents in 1815. The latter settled in the western edge of the precinct, and there resided until their death. James Boyd grew to manhood in this precinct, and began life on a farm in the eastern edge of it. He finally came to the farm now owned by subject, and resided here until his death on July 24, 1872. During his life-time he was a consistent member of the Mt. Zore Baptist Church. The mother died in this precinct in the spring of 1861. Young Boyd was next to the youngest of twelve children, of whom five are now living, viz.: Francis, in Fruit Hill Precinct; Drury, in same precinct; George E., W. H., in Jones County, Texas; and Young, our subject. The common school of this precinct furnished the latter his education; he remained at home until twenty-three, and then settled down in Fruit Hill Precinct; he resided there four years, and then removed to Stewart. In 1870 he came to this precinct and settled on his present farm; he now owns about 150 acres, of which there are about sixty-five acres in cultivation. Mr. Boyd was married in this county on July 9, 1858, to Miss Elizabeth M. Davis, a daughter of John and Mary (Long) Davis, natives of South Carolina. She was a native of this county, and was the mother of seven children, six of whom are now living, viz.: John H., J. W., Lewis, Mildred M., Effie J. and Thomas L. This lady died on November 10, 1877. Mr. Boyd was next married on January 18, 1878, to Miss Gracie M. Ford, a daughter of Elijah and Mary (Armstrong) Ford. This lady is a native of this county.
