I am having much difficulty finding proof for my 94-year-old mother's DAR application. She is Claribel Kern, born 1924 in Lawrence Co., IN. -DAR does not accept family history books or census records. I need to document that that Nancy Boyd Hurd Kern born 1801 in KY, wife of Alexander Kern, was the daughter of Revolutionary War patriot, John Boyd, born 1760 and/or his wife Ann Nancy Martin.
John Boyd and Nancy Boyd Kern are both buried in Lawrence County, but not in the same cemetery. - DAR says there were many John Boyds during those years and we must connect to this specific John Boyd. - There is a Boyd family Bible mentioned online, but I can't find it. Can you help?
