Robert, who always spelled his name BOID, and a veteran of the War of 1812 settled with several of his family members in Tuscaloosa Co., AL about 1830. The following info was transcribed from his family Bible:


“Polly BOID was bourn Sept the 28 day of 1801;

Jane BOID was bourn March the 29 year 1805;

Sarah BOID was bourn July the 8 day year 1807;

Elizabeth BOID was bourn October the 10, 1809;

John Ala BOID was bourn January the 5 day 1812;

Rachel BOID was bourn Sept the 27 day 1813;

William Washington BOID was bourn April the 13 day 1817;

Caty Carline BOID was bourn July the 15 year 1820.”



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

Anna Carline KEZAR bourn Oct the 21 1827;

John Alexander KEZAR bourn Sept the 1 day 1829 (the “KEZARs” are children of Robert Lee and Polly (Boyd) Kizziah)*;

Jane MANICAH was bourn Dec the 16 day 1829;  Note:  I have not been able to identify this person any further -Jim N.

Robert Boid NEWEL was bourn Dec the 19th 1824;**

Matthew NEWEL was born Sept the 17 day 1827 (the “NEWELs” are children of James and Sarah (Boyd) NEWELL)”


*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.

**Robert Boyd Newell is my gtgtgrandfather – Jim N.
