Boydston Family of Pike/Scioto County, Ohio

I am researching the Boydston family of Pike & Scioto County, Ohio. I have found some records of the early families, but I'm not sure how they fit together.

Some early marriages are:
Permelia Boydstone m. Peter Townsend on 24 Oct. 1824
Mary Boydston m. William Kinney on 30 June 1825
David Boydston m. Ophelia Violett on 15 June 1828
John Wesley Boydston m. Eliza Hill on 21 July 1831
Eunice Boydstone m. John Mustard on 8 March 1832
All of these marriages occured in Pike County, and according to census records, all 5 Boydstons were born between 1800-1810.
Also married in Pike County was Levina Boydston m. Jeremiah Dyson Black on 29 Oct. 1829. I haven't found her on any census.

Marriages of Scioto Co., Ohio:
Anna Boydston m. John Burton on 9 Jan. 1820. Her mother, Sarah Cross, consented for her daughter Anna Boydston to marry. Earlier in Scioto County, Sarah Boydston married Sampson Violet in 1810 or 1811. They divorced and shortly afterwards Sarah Vilet married George Cross.
Was Anna Boydston's mother, Sarah, the same woman who married 1st to a Boydston, 2nd to Sampson Violet and 3rd to George Cross? Could the Boydstons in Pike County, who were all about the same age, be siblings and also children of Sarah Cross?

Also, are these Boydstons related to early Scioto/Pike County resident, Presley Boydston? Presley had 3 daughters; Elizabeth m. John Barnes, Ann m. William Talbot on 12 Dec. 1797 and Catherine m. Samuel Mustard on 29 April 1802 in Adams Co., Ohio. Presley was the right age to have a son who could have been the father of all of the above Boydstons.

I would like to hear from anyone who has ANY information about these families.

Thank you,
Shawn Cox
