Sarah BOID was bourn July the 8 day year 1807;

“(unknown -corner torn off) was bourn January 13th day 1823;

*Available records imply that the Kezar grandchildren are children of Robert Lee and Polly (Boyd) Kizziah. It is possible that they belong to William and Elizabeth (Boyd) Kizziah, Jr., but location and timing favor the former – Jim N.
