Looking for descendants of Peter and Perilee BOYD from Waycross GA. Their son, Frank, was my grandfather. Frank died in Columbus OH 1960.
I am truly asking if there is anyone in Waycross, GA that knows anything about the African American Boyd's, I would like to hear from you.
If you are a relative of the Boyd's from Waycross, GA, I would love to talk with you.
If you are a descendant of Peter and Parilee Boyd, please contact me.
Looking for descendants of Robert (Bob and Elizabeth (Betsey) HAIRSTON (Hariston) from Sauartown, NC. Their son, Tippo, was my great grandfather. Tippo came to Columbus OH in 1905.
I tend to have a relative that I'm researching and I stick with him/her until I find a clue, a result, an all conclusive fact. It's as if I can't let go. Looking for them, you find the era of time they lived and you familiarize yourself with it. You have so many life scenarios that you hone in on and never know the truth, for it is so long ago. But that's the attachment.
I look for a reason to let go, searching and finding nothing. The frustration, but I don't. I owe them. To honor and give respect to someone I never met. I exist because of them.
In our family there was my grandfather, Eugene Coatland Hairston. Eugene's father was Tipp, and Tipp had a sister named Sallie, but I found that Tipp had more sisters and brother's yet unknown to me. I found Tipp's mother and father, Bob and Betsey Hairston. I never knew Eugene Coatland Hairston, but he is now so much more.
In our family, on my father's side, there was only Frank Boyd. We only knew he had sisters, Mary and Martha, I found out that they were twins and there were more siblings, a family of fourteen children. I found Frank's mother and father, Peter and Parilee Boyd. I now have great grandparents. I knew him, but he is now much more.
Finding and giving relevance to our ancestors, may not be easy but the wealth of information you find enhances who you are. Finding a name is wealth, yes it is!
