Children of Eston BOYD and Sarah Frisbey
When a small boy, an illness resulted in a deformed spine (rickets),
which disabled him from manual labor. After his mother's death in 1865,
he lived for a short time with his Aunt Delilah Frick. When he was twelve
years old, he went to live with his grandparents, James and Catherine Boyd
until Catherine died in 1881, then a few years with his uncle and aunt,
the Cary Frisbeys. After that he lived with Delilah Frick until his death.

countryside selling groceries and notions, often staying all night at the
"Little Jimmie" as he was called, was an honest, upright boy, respected
by all and a faithful member of the German Baptist Church in Noble Co.
He died at the home of his Aunt Delilah. He is buried in the Saylor Bethel
Cemetery west of LaGrange. he marker says 33 yrs, 6 mo 9 da but 32 yrs.
6 mo 9 da is correct age.
After the death of her mother in 1864, she made her home with her uncle
and aunt, Elizabeth and Cary R. Frisbey, until she was 17 years old. From
1879 for some time she kept house for her father Eston, worked in Bronson,
Mich. and visited a half sister in Colorado.

but kindly person and loved by all; devoted to her family and a member
of the Adventist Church. One winter and another summer she had again lived
with her aunt Elizabeth and Uncle Carey and being a double cousin, was
always considered as a sister by the Frisbey children. She was in failing
