In Reply to: Re: DeBoard/Deborde/Debords by William Lakin Boyd of 146

I'll e-mail what I have, but I have some conflicting info on this family that I haven't been able to sort out. I believe Wm Scott Debord was born in TN (maybe Hawkins Co) and came to Limestone with his sister before 1880. His sister rejoined the rest of the Debord family in Henry co IN; and Wm stayed in Limestone. I think Wm was married at least twice, maybe 3 times. I'm not sure of the mother of Willie Noah DeBoard. Willie went to Truman, AR where he died in 1949 and then was buried in the Point Pleasant cemetery near Athens in Limestone Co Al. Mandy Boyd Deboard is also buried in the Point Pleasant cemetery and I'm told the death date on the tombstone is April 3, 1908. I've also been told that Mandy died during birth of twins. The Point Pleasant cemetery also shows markers for baby Mandy Deboard April 3 1900 - April 10 1900 and baby Ellen Deboard April 3 1900 - April 11 1900. I beleive these are the twins of Mandy and I suspect Mandy Boyd Deboard died April 3, 1900 not 1908 as indicated by the cemetery transcription. Wm Scott shows as a widow in the the 1900 Limestone census with 5 children. I think Wm Scott remarried after 1900 and had other children; then died in 1906 and is also buried in the Point Pleasant cemetery as W. S. Deboard 1857-1906.
