My Boyanton/Boyington family lived in Lawrence County, MS in the mid-1800s then went to Wesson, MS in the late 1800s. Several years ago I tried to connect your family with mine but failed. I believe the Bogalusa branch came from Jackson County, Florida. My branch came to MS from southwest Georgia. They lived near each other and both lines go back to Barnwell District, SC. The father of the Jackson County, FL Boyingtons was Daniel Boyington b.ca.1795 in Barnwell District, SC.
