SILVANUS J. BOYD was born in Muhlenburg County, Ky., August 11, 1833,
and is a son of Rev. Adlai Boyd who, with his parents, moved from the state
of North Carolina about 1814 to Christian County, Ky., and two years
afterward removed to Stewart County, Tenn., where in 1817 he united with
the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and in 1822 entered upon the duties of
a Minister of the Gospel in Christian County, Ky. He married Johanna
Cessna of Muhlenburg [sic] County, Ky., and she died January 3, 1863. He
was actively engaged as a minister for over fifty-nine years and until his
death, which occurred on the last day of 1881,
having preached his last sermon in Greenville, Ky., six days prior to his
death. S. J. Boyd was educated in Greenville, Ky., where he studied law and
was admitted to practice in said place in 1859, and removed to Calhoun,
McLean Co., Ky., in 1866, and in 1876 removed to Hopkinsville, Ky. While

Simuel was born in Amarillo, Potter County, Texas. Most probably Tandy and Eva were living with Tandy's mother, Milly, at the time. I have a picture of Dad (Simuel) sitting on the front steps of a house in Amarillo. His grandmother, Milly Boyd, is standing behind him. However, she has a bonnet on and can't tell what she looked like.

Dad told us that when they lived close to the mountains close of Granite and Altus, they used to climb in the mountains and find big dens of rattle snakes which they tried to kill.

He said that at one place they lived in east Texas in the woods, there was a scare going round about rabies. They called it hydrophobia back then. There were tales of packs of mad dogs roaming the woods. He said he was terrified to walk to school every day because he thought the rabid dogs were going to come and bite him. Sometimes he and his brothers rode horses and mules to school. One time Grandpa Boyd bought donkeys for them to ride. Dad swore that those donkeys were the stubbornest things he ever saw.

When he was a child, he once raised a baby squirrel. He said he loved that squirrel and then one day, for no reason at all, the squirrel nearly bit his finger off. He always told me that wild animals could never be trusted even if one thought they were tame.

Although he had little education, Dad was a brilliant man. Moving around a lot like they did, was not encouragement for attending school. However, Dad said he went to school until he decided that he knew more than the teacher did. Grandma saved all of Dad's report cards. He always made A's. He may have known as much as the teacher because in those days teachers were not required to have as much education as now. He could love at an algebra problem and tell you the correct answer. He didn't know the formulas they teach in school but he always came up with the right answer. He was an avid reader and self educated himself all during his lifetime.

Dad was about 5 ft. 11 inches tall with blue eyes and light brown hair. He probably favored his mother more than the other boys, although he was a lot taller than any of the Elkins'. He was less stocky than his brothers.

In the 1930's during the depression and the dust bowl they had no crops and no food. Oklahoma and north parts of Texas were the hardest hit by this tragedy. Many headed west to California to find work and their stories were probably similar to the one in the book, "The Grapes of Wrath". That is probably when some of Grandpa Boyd's brothers went to California. Dad was still living at home during those years. He set out to find work so he could send money home. He hopped the freight trains like the hobos and rode them north to Minnesota and found work in the broom corn harvest. He did this for several years so he could help his family out. He said they would have to jump off the trains before the train arrived in a big town or the railroad bulls would beat them off with sticks. On the trips back to Oklahoma it was very cold on the trains and in the camps. He ate in hobo camps where everyone pitched in whatever they could scrounge up and make Mulligan Stew. Often it was made with rabbits and whatever else they had. He said the camps were very dangerous. Many of the men were in the same boat he was in, just trying to find work or get back to Oklahoma. However, there were some who were bad and would kill and steal from the others if they got half a chance. He said he always slept with one eye open and his knife in his hand.

Dad loved to play cards and dominoes. In the winter when all he really had to do was feed the hogs and cattle, he would go to town and play dominoes at the Domino Parlor. He was there the day the Erick Bank was robbed in the 1950's. The Domino Parlor was right next to the bank. He was also there when a Mr. Prather shot Russell Coursey over a dispute the two men had about one letting thistles grow in the fence row and the seeds blew over in the other man's field.
Dad also went to poker games which Mama didn't like but couldn't do anything about. Sometimes we played with Dr. Devaney and some other doctors at Sayre. When he went to Oklahoma City with the cattle trucks to sell cattle, he played in high stakes games there. He never really lost much that I heard of. He was very good at it. I used to play hands with him but he would never let us gamble, not even with match sticks. He almost always beat me. In the winter after supper in the evening all of us would play something called pitch to see who would do the dishes. The worst loser had to do the dishes. The 2nd worst loser had to draw a bucket of water from the cistern for the night. We had running water but it was hard and gyppy tasting. We always drank the cistern water when I was at home.

Dad loved animals and was a good farmer and rancher. One of his nephews, Donald, said that his Uncle Sim's fields always looked like they were right out of a picture book. We farmed over 1,200 acres at one time and there was not a weed one any of the places that lasted very long. He had Cecil Robeson, our hired hand, constantly plowing. The row crops were constantly being cultivated. He had us howing weeds. Even in the pastures, he had Irma and me hoeing the cockle burs so they wouldn't get in the cows tails. He hated Johnson grass with a vengeance. Once a small patch of it came up in the northeast corner of the home place, from seeds that he thought blew over from the neighbor's not so well kept field. Dad had us down there digging from here to China. We had to get every little white piece of it so it wouldn't come back. When he bought the Hill Place in the 1950's, we had to pick up rocks for years. They dug out every rock in sight. He worked too hard, from before sun up to after sun down. The only break he ever took was an hour at noon to eat dinner. He worked on all of his own tractors. They all had names, Pete and Jerry were the International M's. Ole Red of the big tractor. I just know it was an International-there was no other kind as far as Dad was concerned. And the "Little H" was my tractor. All the others ran on propane but I wouldn't drive one with propane so Dad left mine a gasoline tractor. The combine, our big wheat hauling truck and all our pickups were International.

In the 1950's Dad and Uncle Demus had about 200 head of cattle on pasture up on Sweetwater Creek. However, as the drought continued, they had to sell them as there was no more food for the cows. They kept a small herd of about 45 head and from then until he died he kept the herd about that size. Sometimes they bought feeder cattle and fed them out in feed lots. I used to go down there and eat the molasses as it dripped into the cattle feed. Also, they raised hogs. The most hogs he had were about 400. Then some disease started and they got rid of them and had no hogs for several years. He had just bought 3 sows and a boar the week our house burned as he wanted to get back into the hog business. Dad always said not to keep all your eggs in one basket. On the farm, if the crops didn't make, maybe the cattle and/or hogs would be bringing good prices. He always did very well except in the 50's during the drought. Then he went off with Uncle Shorty and his boys and worked on the pipe line until the drought was over.

Daddy always nicknamed everyone. He almost never called them by their real names. He made us his own names for them. He called Mama "Annabel". He called me "Baby" (although I was the oldest), he called Irma "Lady". Uncle Demus was "Demsky". Uncle Shorty was "Short Rack".

Daddy had a lot of artistic talent and he used to draw mules in the borders of the newspapers. He read detective magazines which he kept hidden under the cushion of his chair. He smoked cigars on occasion. He died of pancreatic cancer in 1966 right after we got home from Germany.

Daddy had a lot of artistic talent and he used to draw mules in the borders of the newspapers. He read detective magazines which he kept hidden under the cushion of his chair. He smoked cigars on occasion. He died of pancreatic cancer in 1966 right after we got home from Germany.
