I TIIE BOYLES OF KELBURNE son, and Robert, afterwards of Ballochmartine, probably the third son, of John Boyle of Kelburne, were lawfully begotten is clear from many circumstances. They were doubtless called as witnesses to the charter in question in their capacity as the next heirs after their nephew the grantee and his issue-male; and the notary probably styled them sons natural to emphasise the fact that they were sons of the body of the granter. Their attestation implied, as was usual in such cases, consent to, and acknowledgment of, the succession settled by the charter. Their names occur very frequently in the records, and in writs at Kelburne; but neither is ever designate son natural save in this one instance. John Boyle married Katherine Wallace before 8 April 1536 .1 Craw fun I states that this lady (the wife of John Boyle, first of Bellikewin, lineal ancestor of Bellikewin the heir-male of the old house of Kelburne ) was daughter of Wallace of Cairnhill, and widow of Pearstoun.2 She was probably the Katharine Wallis who, with [Robert Barclay of Pearstoun her spouse, was grantee in a charter dated 15 September 1518 .3 They had issue: (1) John Boyle, designate as Younger of Ballikewin 2(J …

Author Notes

About 1820 Nancy and Joseph Boyles and their three small children left their home near Mount Airy, Surry County, NC and traveled in a wagon train with a number of relatives and friends to Little River, AL, a settlement in the southern part of Monroe County near the Baldwin County line. Nancy and Joseph were actually cousins, Nancy being the daughter William Boyles Jr., son of the first William Boyles of Stokes County, NC. Three more children were born to the couple after they settled at Little River, making a total of six. About 1825, Joseph died, leaving Nancy with the six children to raise. There was a seventh child whose name is unknown and is believed to be buried in NC. Nancy proved equal to the task of raising the six remaining children. Nancy was a typical brave pioneer woman, she continued to operate the farm, manage the slaves and run a store which was also a stagecoach stop. Of course, her children, friends and neighbors were of much help. This was an era when neighbors cooperated in house raisings, corn huskings, quilting bees, etc. It has been said the RED EAGLE (William Weatherford) traded with her and assisted her many times. Nancy was was a highly respected, much loved and God fearing lady who shared her bounty with all those in need. One of her most generous acts was the building of a house of worship and the donation of forty acres of land for the ediface, cemetary and purposes pertaining thereto. The log structure that was built by her slaves was used for many years. On January 9, 1867, at the age of seventy-six years, Nancy Boyles was laid to rest in the family burial ground. This was during the terrible years of reconstruction, and life was hard. Such things as marble gravestones were unobtainable for a number of reasons and so her loved ones planted a cedar tree at the head of her grave. This sturdy, strong tree stood as sentinel for 106 years. A large magnolia tree remains in the center of the Boyles plot, lending shade and beauty to the area where Nancy and Joseph lie in eternal rest with six of their children, five grandchildren, a daughter in law and a son in law.
