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.
