Boonton Boyds

Three boys, no girls. Seems to be the pattern of the Boonton Boyds in New Jersey. Lots of boys, hardly any girls. Same with my cousins.

I am the youngest of the generation of Boonton Boyds and the youngest child of Frank and Ruth Boyd.

The relatives that I hung out with were kids of my cousins. First cousins once removed they called us. The Zables. Don’t ask me about second cousins.

As for my direct cousins, some of them are PhD’s, MD’s, two Vets, and me. I’ve got no degree but I’m the most traveled of my older siblings and cousins. Only my niece, Nikki Boyd, has travelled more.

There was another. Never born. An older brother/sister. Thank you for having me after that!
