Searching For Ohio Boydstons
Anybody with info. regarding Boydstons in Ohio, please contact me. My grandfather was Charles Boydston married to Hazel Hatfield. HIs father and mother were James Boydston and Mary Brown. Although they lived in Chillicothe Ohio, I'm not sure if they married and started their family here. My mother has mentioned "Uncle Bill, Uncle Lute, Aunt Lizzie, Aunt Alma, Aunt Mary (who was blind)...she even recalls a Lemuel Boydston whom she believes was an Uncle also. She believes her great great grandfather was Joseph Boydston who drowned in a pond in Chillicothe possibly in 1906 or 1907. We have the news paper article. We have reason to believe our Boydston family may have originated in the North Carolina/Virginia area. And that they are of Irish/Indian/Negro descent. Although we aren't really sure. If you have any info on our family history, please respond. Thus far, information about our Boydston family lineage has remained a mystery, even to the oldest family members still living. This may very well be due to the crossing of the bloods.
