Board Family Tree
...the story of the Board Family in America...
"From Sea to Shining Sea"
We are researching the Board Family that started in Maryland in 1706, moved to Bedford County, Virginia in 1747, and from there moved into Kentucky in 1806. Descendants subsequently settled in Indiana, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Missouri, Texas, and beyond. We have documented the Maryland story, and much of the Kentucky story. In 1997, Isabelle Board Obert published "The Board Family Chronicle: From Maryland to Bedford County, Virginia." Also in 1997, Leah McCarty published "The Boards: From Bedford County, Virginia, to Breckinridge and Meade Counties of Kentucky."
We are currently researching the Virginia history of the Board Family, and are searching for descendants who are willing to help in this endeavor. If you have any information that you would like to share, to include Bible records, letters, pictures, news clippings, etc., we would love to hear from you. Please contact Isabelle via email.
