Luther Boyd Jr.,  son  of Luther Boyd and Easther ENGLISH was born in 1830, probably in  Franklin County, as his father was listed in that county in the 1830 census. He was a farmer in south central Ohio  with  his  father. He married first Eliza Jane FRENCH  in  Delaware  County,  Ohio on 24 December 1857.  Eliza died prior to 1871  and  Luther  married for his second wife, Mary Ann (SEARLES) HULLNER/Hollander, on 4 November 1872.  She had three daughters by a previous marriage.  She was born in 1845 in New York and died in 1879 in Delaware County.  Luther died 8 November 1887 and is probably  buried in  the Cheshire Cemetery in Delaware County in an unmarked grave. The records were destroyed in a fire.  All children were born in Delaware County. I have a copy of Luther's will.  It contains 85 pages because his wife Mary had died before him and he had left minor children.  Since Luther Boyd III was only 11 years old the estate was not finalized for ten years.
