Fatherfather of Nancy and Betty Martin1 b. s 1745, d. bt 1781 - 1835
Mothermother of Nancy and Betty ?2 b. s 1750, d. bt 1781 - 1840
     Ann Nancy Martin was born on 3 March 1770 at Martinsburg, Berkeley County, West Virginia; then Frederick County VA.3 She married John Boyd at Martinsburg, Berkeley County, West Virginia, on 7 September 1791.4 Her married name was Boyd.1 They resided at Kentucky between 1796 and 1827. "John and Nancy went west to Bourbon in the mid-1790's. Edyth BOYD HEATON wrote that she remembered a newspaper clipping in a scrapbook compiled by Mariah (Highland) BOYD that told of three BOYD brothers coming down the Ohio River on a flatboat and landing at Maysville KY. They made their way south to what is now Bath Co KY where they settled. John soon acquired 1,000 acres of land from Curtis MIDKIFF, the date of which purchase was not found in the Bourbon Co records. Nicholas Co was formed in 1800 from Bourbon and Mason Counties and John was also found there in the 1810 tax list. Deed records indicate that he did not change residence but that the county boundries changed around him. He engaged in land transactions "on the waters if Somerset Creek and Little Flat Creek," the first one on 10 Feb 1797 in Bourbon Co was a sale of 250 acres from John BOYD to Elijah BOYD (his younger brother). Other transactions were for 100 acres he sold in 1803, 186 acres on 21 Aug 1826 and 12 acre adjoining the town of Carlisle on 14 Jan 1828. Several of his children were married in Nicholas Co and some of them accompained him late in his life to Indian Creek Twp Lawrence Co IN, west of Bedford IN when he moved there in 1827.
