Boyd, Andrew Hunter Holmes D.D., a Presbyterian minister, was born in Boydsville, Va., June 4, 1814.

J.; also at New Haven, Conn.; and for a few years in Edinburgh, Scotland, attending the lectures of Dr. Chalmers and Sir William Hamilton. He filled several of the most important Presbyterian churches in Virginia and Maryland. He was not stationed long at one place, for he was constantly receiving calls to other and larger churches.
