Betty, Here's some information I have taken from my father's notes where he was trying to pull together some kind of connection between his Carr's and the Boyd's. Thought it might help you in your Boyd/Hendrick search. John Boyd m. Polly HENDRIX (spelled different than yours) in Bath County, Kentucky on Aug. 1, 1825 (Father's notes to himself - may be Aunt Polly referred to in Uncle Sam Carr's letter to his father, William W. Carr) 1850 Census of Bath Co, Ky. History Library #522 Pg. 149 Lucy Boyd, 75, VA. Wm. W Carr, 38, KY Wm Carr, 11, KY Mary J. Carr, 9, KY Samuel Carr, 7, KY *Thomas Jefferson Carr, 4, KY (my Gr Grandfather) m. Ellen Cartmill, Dec. 7, 1865 Maranda Carr, 1, KY Hope this information helps in your search. Can you help me peice together any of the Carr/Boyd connection? Thanks!
