The Boyd Family Genealogy

Oaks Family Record

Welcome to the Boyd Family genealogy. This information was compiled and copyrighted by a member of The Oaks House Museum Corporation and the National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Mississippi.

Linda Thompson Robertson (M.A., Art History, Vanderbilt University; J.D., Mississippi College School of Law) began her research of the property and family of James Hervey Boyd and Eliza Ellis Boyd in 2004. It is a work in progress that she strives to make as accurate as possible. She acknowledges, however, that nowhere is there more proof of the unreliability of hearsay evidence and the prevalence of human error than in genealogical research.

If you have comments or suggestions, please e-mail her directly at or write her in care of The Oaks, P.O. Box 4240, Jackson, MS 39296-4240. This genealogical information was last updated in December 2013.
