BOYD, ROBERT T, Co B, private, enlisted for 3 years in Carroll Co, TN on 8/21/62 and mustered at Humboldt, TN on 8/26/62 at the same time and places as his brother Jabez T Boyd. He was 20 years old (b. 4/12/1845) and received $100 bounty for enlistment. He does not appear to have been captured at Trenton or Lexington, TN but is with the detachment in May and June 1863, stationed most likely on the Tennessee/Mississippi line. Presumed captured with the regiment at Union City, TN on 3/24/64, Boyd spent time in Andersonville Prison in Georgia. He was released through Jacksonville, FL at the same time as his brother Jabez and was discharged from the service on the same day, as well. He returned to Carroll Co, TN and lived near Buena Vista, TN in the 1890 veterans' census. He reported his ailments that year as scurvy and weakness of the eyes. Boyd applied for and received an invalid pension, #161,411/120,721 (unknown year). He died on 4/1/1904 and is buried in the Spellings Cemetery in Carroll Co, TN with a military marker on his grave. His wife, Lincy E Boyd, received a widow's pension. MR #2193
