About Rachel Blair

I believe the correct parent is Thomas Boyd, but trying to resolve the conflict does not allow Thomas to be selected.

From what I understand : James Blair erected a stone in Aghadowey churchyard to the memory of his wife, Rachel Boyd, who died March 10, 1700 aged fifty-six years. They had a son named Robert who married Isabella Rankin, daughter of David Rankin, who came from Scotland in 1685 and died in Aghadowey in 1750 aged eighty-four years as is cut on his tombstone.

Robert Blair who married Isabella Rankin and was the son of James Blair and Rachel Boyd, was the ancestor of the New England Blairs.
