You didn't indicate whether Boyd was her maiden or married name and/or the name of her spouse making it harder to determine the correct person.  There is a Dorotha J Boyd b. IN dau of Calvin Boyd.  They are found in census data with Calvin parents, Moses and Jane, and many of his siblings.   If this is the correct family, use the free search tool at:  https://familysearch.org/ and by plugging in the individual names and dates you will find more.

If not, please provide Dorothy's spouses names, any names of children etc with corresponding locations and approximate dates. Good Luck
