William Harrison Boyd (1832-1910), a son of David and Martha Narcissa [Gaston] Boyd, married Miss Cynthia Maria Brooks on July 13th 1852 in Waterloo, Laurens County, South Carolina. This union was blessed with the following known ten children:
Ida Marie (1853-1856)
Samuel William (1853-1858)
Elizabeth "Betty" (1860-1862)
Bartlett Brooks (1864-1940)
Corrie (1864-1912)
Rosa {m. Leslie}(1866-1905)
William Burland (1869-1952)
Harrison "Harry" (1871-1940)
Fannie Allen {m. Ramage}(1874-1938)
Miller (1878-1940)

William Harrison Boyd’s parents died when he was about eleven. He and his younger siblings, now orphaned, went to live with their maternal great-grandmother in Tennessee. William had inherited a large portion of property in Chester County, South Carolina from his maternal grandfather, John Gaston; due to his mother’s death in 1843. So, when of age, William returned to South Carolina. In 1861, at the start of the Civil War, William enlisted in Co. E, 6th South Carolina Cavalry… serving until surrender in 1865.

In the mid-1880’s, William moved his family to the area around Redland in Hempstead County, Arkansas. Here he lived out his days farming. He died on April 13th 1910 in the 77th year of his age.
