email from my sister lisa butler
"I've just started on the Boyds, although my older sister has researched them some. I'll keep your email on file and as I get more on them I'll be better able to answer your question. It sounds like it might be a match as Sanford came from Indiana and his parents came from KY. Hopefully we can "connect". John S. Boyd might be the connection as Davis City, Iowa isn't that far from Mercer co, MO where Sanford settled. I'll have to look into this.
What I have so far is-Sanford Clark Boyd was born in Indiana and that his parents were born in KY (this is from a census for Lindley twp. in Mercer Co MO but my sister failed to mention the eyar so I'll have to look it up sometime. A guy emailed me that Sanford was born 21 October 1859 near Green Castle, Indiana, died 1924 and was the son of ?Boyd and Lucy ? (the dates are from his obituary, source for parents unknown and unverified by me.)
I'm copying my older sister Deb on this as she's done more of the Boyd genealogy than I have.

thanks for answering. I'm forwarding this reply on to my 'cousin' Linda who is directly descended from the BOYDS who married into our LANDES family. Our LANDES/BOYD families were from Greencastle, Indiana, also (Putnam county) so this looks promising to be a connection for Linda, hopefully!
