Boyd, Joseph Mccraven, Mary Jun/81/JAN Ninety-Six and Abbeville Dist., SC
I have no idea how to interpret the date information (many records on the CD had this kind of obscure notation).  Neither this date nor the one below can be correct with regard to the marriage, except that this one could be the birthyear of Joseph.  I would think this was not our couple, except that secondary sources do accept that it is.

Mary and Edward CORBIN are their grandchildren, that is, children of their widowed and re-married daughter, Elizabeth (BOYD) CORBIN ALEXANDER.

6.  1860 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #6 of 13):  Hogansville P.O., Hogansville, 700th Dist., Troup Co., GA, Roll M653_138, p. 252, PN 78, 539/499, enumerated 1 Jun 1860, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1860 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
Jas M Boyd 78 M   Farmer 3000 5000 SC

E Alexander 43 F         "
Wm Boyd 33 M   "     "
Emma Alexander 10 F         Ga
Jno H Cooper 27 M   " 1000   "
I have no explanation for the enumerator's error, beyond the fact that he must have mis-read his own field notes when filling in the Population Schedule (usually done back at the County Court House).  E. ALEXANDER is their twice widowed daughter, Elizabeth.  Emma is Elizabeth's only child with her second husband.
