I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.

1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"
Immigration date is not recorded

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members with their birthplaces

1880 is the 1st census that shows parental birthplaces and family relationships +++

TRY - Find a grave – FREE SITE - volunteer site all states; frequently has headstone pic


Try Vital Records – Birth, Marriage, & Death, Social Security Info., Census Records – FREE ALL STATES

Michigan did not require “by law” birth, marriage & death registrations until 1867.

The Seeking Michigan web site has NO death record for William Boyd dying in 1903

There is a 20 yr. gap [1880 - 1900] in the US census records as the 1890 census was burned in the 1920's.

1900 -
William Boyd is not listed in St. Clair County.

WHERE did you find a census record for William Boyd.???
