Working on Ancestry of William "Hopalong Cassidy" Boyd

526 views
William Lawrence "Hopalong Cassidy" Boyd (1895-1972) was my fifth cousin according to family trees and emails that mutual cousins exchanged with me.  I lack source information on his ancestors.  I would like some help finding sources.  I received information about "Hoppy" being mentioned in family letters and that he sent yellow roses to Boyd family reunions.

This is what I have:

Parents: Charles William Boyd b 22 Jul 1870 in Ohio; died April 1913.  Mother was Lida Alberta Wilkens (I have no info on her)

Grandparents: John Boyd and Mary J. Thompson.  John Boyd's dates b 8 Oct 1832 d 27 Jul 1892.  Mary J. Thompson: b 18 Sep 1835 d 22 May 1896

Great-grandparents: John William Thompson and Sarah Frame McWilliams.  They may have been cousins through the Thompson/Frame family of Fayette Co PA.  John William Thompson 3 Jun 1802-13 Feb 1854.  Sarah Frame McWilliams 17 Oct 1805 in Fayette Co. PA and d. 22 Mar 1891 in Moline, Kansas

2nd ggparents: Nancy Frame and Thomas McWilliams  married about 1804 in Fayette Co., PA.  Nancy b 1785 d 15 Mar 1825.  Thomas McWilliams b ca 1783 German Twp., Fayette, PA, d. 18 Feb 1841 Morristown, Belmont, OH

3rd ggparents: William Frame "Judge Billy" 6 Sep 1755 New London Twp., Chester, PA d 11 Apr 1827 Guernsey, OH; Margaret Thompson b 1760 Chester, PA d. 24 Mar 1827 Wills Twp., Guernsey, OH

Margaret Thompson is [Thompson-18382]  and has a duplicate profile [Thompson-26805] as the wife of William Frain/Frame [Frain-95]

Mainly I need sources that are better than unsourced descendancies and personal emails.

Margaret, I can't find a profile for Hoppy. If that is true, let's start one and add sourced info there. Just drop me a line. Vic
Added a link to his FAG profile, which has profiles for four of his five spouses.

Ok, I have got Hopalong Cassidy connected.  The profile is [Boyd-10032]  It needs a notables tag. The profile needs to be filled out.  I haven't got any information on his five marriages.  Look around for an appropriate photo.  I thought his Brazilian immigration card was a hoot.

Do I need to remove myself as profile manager to let the notables project do the necessary revisions?  The profile [Boyd-10032] needs a notables template.  Add categories!

I do not have any documentation.

My Boyd line came from Belmont, Ohio to Jay Co./Blackford Co./Montpelier, Indiana.  They kept a farm in Ohio.

My mother told me William Boyd was a cousin of my Grandfather Robert Arnold Boyd.  His parents died when he was young and there was a summer (I recall) that William lived with them.  Then I believe he went to Kansas?

If I find any documentation, I will share happily!
