I have since been back and walked the cemetery as you do because I have one famiy of close relatives -- who are actually my only family now -- Dr. and Mrs. Robert Hodge who live on Prather Hill on 39th Street."

Notes for HOLLAND H. BOYDSTON:|
In Steve Verden's notes, he states that Holland H. Boydston is listed in "Faubion and Allied Families" as a child of Thomas Henry Boydston, son of James Nichols Boydston, and that the book shows Holland born before the couple was married.
Steve notes that my files do not show this, but show a Harvey, which is too young to be Holland.
I am nearly certain that the information on this family group and Holland being a son of James Nichols Boydston (rather than Thomas Henry Boydston) came from Ruth Walton of Salem, OR, but do not know her sources of information.
