The two brothers Robert and William Boyd
were born in Canada. Robert around 1862 and
William 1870. They possibly immigrated to
the USA sometime before 1910 or so.
They were children of Robert Boyd and Ellen
Lynch. They are related to my family. Would
share informations.

I am looking for a biography on this William Boyd. I know that he is a Jr. and that his father died in Texas while trying to help others in a work accident. After his father died, he quit school to help his mother. He made his way to California and became Hopalong Cassidy, the cowboy movie star. This is all the info I have. Any help would be greatly apprieciated. Thank you.

Hi Karen,
Thanks for your answer.
Do you know who where the parents of "your
William Boyd", or...better, his grand-parents.
I am working hard to find the one I quote.
Awaiting your note.
Best regards.

Hi Celine, thanks for your note. My William Boyd is a Jr. His father is also named William Boyd. The son was born 5 June 1898 in Cambridge, Ohio. They moved to Tulsa Ok in 1905 and the father was killed here, on a job accident. Bill left for Calif in 1937. This is all that I know, except that Bill becomes Hopalong Cassidy. Again, thanks. Karen

William Boyd (Hopalong Cassidy)was born June 5, 1895. He was born near Hendrysville, Ohio in what is now Belmont County, Ohio. Some list it as Guernsey County. The confusion arises because Guernsey County was created from Belmont (something like that) and also Hendrysville (near Barnesville) is quite close to the Guernsey Co. line. There is also confusion on his birth date. I believe it is June 5, 1895 not 1898. Most official sources list it as 1895.

My Greatgrandfather, Neal Boyd was a cousin of William Boyd (Hopalong). His father is often referred as William but his name is Charles W. Boyd. Charles W.Boyd was married to Lida Wilkins. Charles W.Boyd was the son of John Boyd (born in Belmont Co in 1832). John Boyd's father was Robert Boyd born in 1809. Robert Boyd was married to Matilda Baggs. Robert Boyd was born November 2, 1809 in Cumberland, Adams, PA. His father was also Robert Boyd, born about 1790 in York (Adams) Co., PA, His father was William Boyd born 1722 or 1720 in the same place. His father was also William, born around 1700. I have been alble to piece this together by using the web site familysearch.com and also talking to my relatives and looking at histories, census records, etc. in Belmont Co.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have found our anything different or more.

Hi Bonnie, Thanks for the info. It is great! My ex-mother-in-law was Mary Jane Boyd. She is related to this family but as yet I haven't made the connection. I'm doing this search for my sons. Mary Jane has a brother named William Boyd. I'll have to find out their fathers name. Mary Jane would have been born around 1918-20. Her brother was a couple of years older. He is still living so maybe I can get more info from him. Thanks again. Karen Kriske

Boyds in Belmont/Guernsey County

As you probably know both counties are filled with Boyds. Most of the Boyds that populated these counties came from PA and MD. There are many William Boyd's in both counties but the Boyds related to Hopalong (William Boyd) were concentrated around Barnesville. Good luck in your search.
