Mary E. LeFurge Boyd was the firstborn child of Benjamin and Sophia (Freer) LeFurge. She married Robert Boyd on 03 Nov 1853 in Chelsea, Washtenaw Co., MI USA. They had no children, however, it appears Mary raised Robert's son (Edward Boyd) from a previous marriage. Robert was 14-1/2 years older than Mary, so there may have been other children as well. Still researching.

I have done extensive genealogy research on the LeFurge family, and Robert's family is well-documented.

NOTE from headstone photo owner: "FYI Cushman's are on the back of the Boyd gravestone but I did not take a picture of that side. This stone is in section E 3 by the long wall on the Oak Grove map." Joan Gordenier {J M Gordenier on Nov 07, 2013 8:12 PM}

"Boyd, Robert, 1821-1901, s/o Lewis & Sophia Cushman Boyd. Mary, 1837-1893, nee LeFurge, w/o Robert Boyd.

These members of the Cushman family are direct descendants of Robert Cushman who came to America in 1621 on the "Fortune" and who is famous for the fact that his was the first sermon to the Puritans in America to be printed. See Genealogy of tthe Cushman Family, Little Brown & Co. 1855."

Thank you for the transcription, Barbara {Debra Hart Blackgrave Tyre, 11.23.2012}.
