I believe that my gg grandfather Thomas Boyd's parents were Thomas Boyd and Levina Sparks that were married in Perry County, IN in 1820 but I'm not 100% sure. I would like to find out if they are indeed his parents and if the tree can be taken back any further.

Thanks in advance and have a wonderful day!!! Shirley Boyd Dusinberre
