  • Notes 
    • 1850 Carroll Co AR - Carrollton twp
      taken 15 Oct by T Denton
      printed pg 129b line 32 120/120
      Boyd, Tillmon 32 IN farmer
      Elizabeth 26 MO
      Robert H 7 AR

      Tilman Boyd was granted 160 acres just south of Weatherford, Texas along a tributary of the Brazos River
      called San Antonio Creek. It was alternately referred to as a settler's claim and a pre-emption claim. Basically
      a pre-emption claim allows for a grant if the applicant can show that he has settled, inhabited, and improved land
      continuously for a period of three years. This acreage had been part of the Mississippi and Pacific Railroad reserve
      land which was opened up for settlement by an act passed 26 Aug 1856. 160 acres was the standard amount given.
      The pertinent facts from the application and patent are:
      Tilman Boyd presented a pre-emption affidavit to the Parker County Clerk on 28 Feb 1857.
      The land bordered the 160 acre survey of Samuel Criswell (significance explained below).
      Tilman Boyd's survey took place on 27 Feb 1857 (but not presented to the court until 7 Jun 1858).
      On 28 Feb 1857 Samuel Criswell and R. E. Byrd stood as witness that Tilman Boyd was settled on the vacant
      land at the date of the Act 26 Aug 1856 and continued to reside there.
      The patent (deed) was granted on 7 Jan 1861.

      This places Tilman in TX prior to Aug 1856 which is consistent with the birth of Tilman Jr in TX in Nov 1855.
      The interesting part about his neighbor who stood witness for him is that this is the same Samuel Criswell who was in Izard Co,
      AR in 1850 living next door to two Glover families. Possible connection with Tilman's first wife Elizabeth Glover??? The patent
      date on his land is 5 Aug 1859, which means he had been in TX since atleast Aug 1856 as well.

      1856 Parker Co Tax Roll - Tillman Boyd -160 acres, no Negroes

      Sep 1857 - Jury scrip was paid to T. Boyd

      25 Sep 1858- In the Belton Independent newspaper, page 3 col 1 under "Marks and Brands":

      Tilman Boyd - o 1-2 c and u bit re, u 1-2 el e; brand TB joined (over half crop and under bit right ear; under half crop left ear)

      John Boyd - u b r; no brand (under bit right ear)


      1858 Census of Weatherford, Parker Co taken 01 Oct
      T H Boyd 8 people 1 voter

      1858 Parker Co Tax Roll - Tillman Boyd

      1859 Parker Co Tax Roll - Tillman Boyd
      Also a P H Boyd - perhaps this is the Patrick Boyd which also enlisted in the 19th regiment from Parker Co.
      I have not been able to locate him before or after the war.

      23 Jan 1864 - T. Boyd's petition to the Weatherford Masonic Lodge was approved

      Mar 1864 Tilman Boyd served for 23 days in the Texas State Troop (a home guard that protected Texas against the Indians
      and was used to track down deserters and Union spies). He was paid $2 a day for his service. He joined the 1st Frontier
      District Company A in Weatherford, Parker Co. He was 46 in Mar of 1864. (consistent with 1818 bdate). Note:about this time
      the TST was attached to the regular Confed army

      Tilghman Boyd, Sgt in Co E, Burford's 19th Reg, TX Cav CSA. He was 43 in 1862, 5 ft 5 inches tall, blue eyes and light hair.
      Again the age is consistent.
