Several descendants of John Irvine and Mary Boyd are collaborating on research on this family. Please see, for a discussion of what we know, and don't know, about John and Mary.

I removed Margaret as a second name. Although it is on her page on Find A Grave (Find A Grave Memorial# 81421719), she appears only as Mary in all the records and histories of Hat Creek, Virginia.

If this is the wife of John Irvine of Hat Creek, Virginia (see my web page which is being cited here), then her birthdate must have been considerably earlier than 1725. I'm OK with merging this profile with Boyd-2676 providing we keep the earlier birth date on the merged profile.

Boyd-2734 and Boyd-2676 appear to represent the same person because: husbands have been merged. Can't merge daughter Mary until her parents are merged.

I adopted this profile on December 8, 2013, after seeing that it was orphaned and that it contained what I believe is erroneous information. 1) I know of no evidence for her having a middle name (yes, it's on FindAGrave, but not in any historical records to the best of my knowledge). 2) Their marriage date is not known for sure, but a history written by a descendant in the 1800s says that they were married in Ireland before they came to America. They were not in Virginia as early as 1728, and Campbell County didn't exist until 1782.
