Maj. Boyd was the husband of (1) Elizabeth and (2) Lemira S. Douglass.

The county where Maj. Boyd was born was inscribed on the tall monument but is no longer completely legible. The last three letters are "FAX" - possibly Halifax or Fairfax County.

Maj. Boyd, his two wives and his two children who died young, all passed away long before Mt. Olivet was established. Evidently, all five were reinterred in this cemetery from another - possibly Nashville City Cemetery.
