I am more intrested in family history than in genealogy; as such, I wanted to at least identify those individuals connected via living memory...the grandparents of my grandparents, Adalaska Bird Cross and Mary Ethel Shepherd. I would love to hear from any Cross-Chitty, Shepherd-Boyd descendants who have collected family histories...who know what these folks were doing before 1950...who are descendants of any of the Cross-Shepherd siblings, et al.

Fortunately, I've been able to trace Grampa's family (Cross-Chitty) and Gramma's paternal side (the Shepherds) back as far as seven generations. In 1991, Gordon W. Paul compiled a [relatively] complete Boyd genealogy back to John Boyd of Berkeley County, West Virginia (dob, c. 1735, in England), which may or may not be available online. I have a copy of his published research that I would be happy to share with anyone interested; it's quite comprehensive, with interesting supporting data, beyond simple vital statistics.
