Boyd Family Tree Drawing

Cool family tree drawing.

Here's the seller's description:

This 19th Century, hand drawn Tree depicts and records the family of General Elisha Boyd.
It includes Colonel John Elisha Boyd of Civil War fame, Andrew Hunter Holmes Boyd, and Chas. James Faulkner.

It is drawn in pencil on paper board with penned names and dates. It is framed without glass.
Overall condition is very good. There is paper discoloration, some minor mars and a faded area on the main base of the tree.

It was recently found in the Tidewater-Area of S.E.Va.

Very interesting. I descend through General Elisha Boyd's brother,John Boyd, Jr. He also was in the American Revoluton. John married Ann Nancy Martin,and Martinsburg (W.)Virginia was named for her father and his brothers. Their daughter Juliana was my dad's great-grandmother.

Wow that's awesome! I can't imagine finding something like that connected to my family. I'm glad that you were able to see it, albeit only through the computer. Thanks for sharing!
