I am baffled by info re. Aaron Carrel Boylan (b. ca 1690) and wife Mae Ryman.

+1 vote
I am Ralph Boylan, son of Aaron Carrel Boylan and Anna Mae Ryman.  My father is son of Bert C.Boylan, who was son of Alphonse Caleb Boylan, son of Aaron Annon Boylan, son of Aaron Boylan and Sarah Thompson, son of Aaron (II) Boylan and Sarah McDade, son of Aaron (I) Boylan and Catherine Parkinson.  Quite a coincidence if my 5th Great Grandfather was also son of an Aaron Carrel and Mae Ryman!

Note to Ralph Boylan re: Aaron Carrell Boylan & Mae Ryman:

My sources for the data re: Aaron Carrell & Mae Ryman are:

1.      undocumented Public Member Trees from Ancestry.com.

2.      Boylan, B. L., and James D. Boylan (Co-Historians).  The Boylan Family: The Descendants of Aaron Boylan and Catherine Parkinson Shilton. Unpublished: Ann Arbor, MI, 1942.

3.      Boylan, John A. (Project Director)., History of the Boylan Family 1710-1976 (Cambridge Springs, PA, Caldwell Printing, 1976), JABJR library.

It is of particular interest to me that your name appears in my existing Boylan family database showing you are my 4th cousin:

Ralph Boylan: military service WWII- Pearl Harbor

Son of Aaron Carrell & ? Boylan

Son of Robertus Caleb & Winnie G. Whiteman Boylan

Son of Alphonse Caleb & Mary A. Fitch Boylan

Son of Aaron Anon/Annon & Eliza McFarland Boylan

Son of Aaron Anon/Annon & Sarah Thompson Boylan

Son of Aaron & Sarah McDade Boylan

Son of Aaron & Catherine Parkinson Boylan

Son of Aaron Carrell & Mae Ryman Boylan

You are right about the two Aarons having married an Ann Ryman…unbelievable coincidence if this is true!

Nice to hear from you…hope we can collaborate more on this family data.
