Mary Ellen Boyd, my great great Grandmother, was CW veteran Natan Berkey's first wife. Nathan is buried nearby. They married on Jan. 16, 1868 and Mary Ellen had 8 children. She died, reportedly of Typhod, before her 40th birthday, leaving her eldest child, 18 yo Amanda, to care for the family, the youngest of whom was 3 year-old Clara.

Mary Ellen was born to Thomas and Caroline Boyd in Montgomery County, OH, their third child and youngest daughter. She had ten siblings. Her parents were both born in PA.
