Re: Boydston Cemetery-Texas
I don't have any information on the spouse of William Peter Boydstun other than I show they were married in Yalobusha County, MS on Jan 4 1852.While the name could be Serena, it looks like Darena Richards.
While William Peter Boydston had a number of children, he did have a son named Benjamin Jefferson Boydston.I am related to this line.
This Benjamin Jefferson Boydston was born Mar 6 1853 in MS and married Alice A McDonald on Jan 6 1876 in Yalobusha County, MS.He died Oct 3 1940 in Energy, Comanche County, TX.Alice A McDonald was born in 1854 in MS and died before Oct 1940.She was the daughter of William Henry McDonald and Frances L Ward.If anyone has information on this Ward or McDonald line it would be appreciated.
Benjamin and Alice had 3 children:
(1)William Pitts Boydston born in 1877; married in 1920 to Nora Magadelene Laymance and died in Mar 1945 in Carrollton, Dallas County, TX and is buried at the Hilltop Memorial Park.He had also been married to Mary Green.
(2)Samuel Martin Boydston born in 1878 in MS who married Dora Julia Davis.
(3)Obe Boydston who was born aft 1879.
There are a lot of blanks here, and I would appreciate anyone filling them in.I am related to the McDonald side and to the William Pitts Boydston/Nora Magadelene Laymance side.
