John BOYD & Jean CALDWELL

looking at this family in particular and have just begun my research.
The youngest son "Alexander" is the only one in Scotland who
fits the MI inscription in Falkirk, Stirlingshire - "died August 29, 1849 -
age 88". My Alexander
Boyd and his wife Helen
children - John, Agnes, Thomas, Helen and
Jean. We know that Agnes married Andrew
Graham - some of their offspring to
Australia. Thomas married Isabella
McLennan in 1819 and these two came to Canada in 1820.

the family built as below, from reference to the IGI and Old Parochial
are a couple of children that don't really seem to fit yet - for example, the
first child "Jane" from the IGI had a mother named "JANE"
and the entry is for Stevenston. I
didn't find the corresponding OPR reference. The 2nd child "Robert" is
most likely true but I still need to find the OPR entry.
"Agnes" I only found in the IGI and again mother's name is
"John" is perplexing - christened September 21, 1760 according to the
IGI - but I have the OPR in front of me for September and the original
transcription for the IGI must be in error.
There were in fact, two "John"'s baptized Sept 21st, but sons
of Patrick Jack and Archibald Mure.
next entry in the register is for my Alexander
Boyd in October.
My gut feeling is that the IGI entry is wrong.
Of course, I need to get to the local FHS to order that film from
previous research for the IGI and also the film for the register of births &
baptisms for Ardrossan.
the hunt is on and I would love to hear from other BOYD researchers if anything
in this fits.
