William Boyd, brother to my grandmother, Sarah BOYD MCEWEN (b. 1882), was married and had two sons and one daughter, Margaret, when he was killed in WW1.
His parents were William James BOYD and Margaret Ann WATTERS, grandparents William BOYD and Agnes MCKAVANA/MCKAVANAGH - all of Belfast.
William's OTHER siblings were Emma FRANCY, John BOYD, Agnes.
There is an entry for the death of a William BOYD on the Commonwealth War Commission website which lists him as the son of William Boyd, husband of M.A. BULL (formerly BOYD) of 41 James St. Belfast. This William was born in Belfast and was a member of the 15th Battalion of the Royal Irish Rifles - service no. 12215.
I am wondering if these are the same person.
Thank you for your time,
Margaret Bendickson
