When did Alexander Boyd die? I see he sold property in Granville Co., NC to a Henry Fitts (of Warren County) in 1823. Does anyone have a death date for him?

Alexander Boyd, born Glascow, Scotland 8/16/1746. Immigrated to Mecklenburg County, VA. died 8/11/1801 in Mecklenburg County. Buried in Family Cemetery in town of Boydton, the county seat of Mecklenburg. He married Ann Swepson on 3/24/1768.
They had 11 children, one of which was Alexander Boyd, Jr(this is likely the one your query was about). He was born 3/2/1773 in Mecklenburg County and died there 5/28/1836.
He married Matilda Burwell and had 14 children, one of which was named Alexander Spotswood Boyd, born 1819 in Mecklenburg and died there 5/26/1896. Married Nannie Ham, both are buried in St.James Episcopal Church Cemetery, Boydton, VA. Boydton is named after the first Alexander Boyd, was orginally Boyd Town and later shortened to Boydton.
This maybe more info than you wanted but just in case, am sending it.
This family is well documented as it was a very prominent early Mecklenburg family.
