Jean Mccluskey I'm researching the Boyds whom were a part of Charleston SC history. They owned "BOYD BROS" which was a wholesale liquor/grocery business. They planted some of the 1st asparagus in the US in the 1800's. One in particular became of note, Dr. William Augustus Boyd who was the 1st orthopedic surgeon in South Carolina. He also resided in Columbia SC w/ his wife, Mary Keller Boyd and their daughter, Mary. Dr. Boyd's father was Bernard Boyd, mother was Johanna Sherfesee Boyd. He had a twin sister, Elvina.
