JUDGE ROBERT L BOYD. ‎[CHICKASAW.]‎ The present District Judge of the Chickasaw Nation was born in Martha county, Mississippi, in January, 1844. His father, Mr. James M. Boyd, who was of Scotch descent, married Nancy Love, a Chickasaw of the houseof In-quin-no-ma. He and his family emigrated to Fort Smith, Arkansas, in 1855, and thence to Pickins county, Chickasaw Nation, in 1860. Robert was educated at the Skullyville National School, and at the opening of the war joined the Bell Point Guards, under Captain Hurtzig. During the years which followed he became a member of Cooper's command and the Wells Batallion, and was afterward transferred to the Chickasaw Batallion. During his war experience he served at Pea Ridge, Cabin Creek, Prairie Grove and Mazzard Prairie. After the surrender he married Emily Allen,who died within twelve months; after which he married Mollie McSweeney, a full sister of the wife of David Osborne Fisher. In 1868 he came to Pickins county, where he was elected to the office of Sheriff, which position he held until 1870, resigning on account of bad health. In 1872 he was appointed by Governor Cyrus Harris to fill the unexpired term of C. P. H. Percy, Attorney General, to which office he was re-elected in the following year and held for a period of seven years, off and on. In 1878 he was elected National Secretary, and filled the same office under Governor Jonas Wolf in 1884. In 1888 he received the appointment of District Judge, which office he is at present filling to the public satisfaction. Among the minor positions of trust occupied by Judge Boyd we may mention that of Secretary of the Senate, Committeeman on Revision of the Laws, Draftsman of the Law Committee of the Legislature, Constable of Pickins County, etc., etc. He was more than once solicited to become a candidate for Governor, but invariably refused to make the race, although he has held every other office except Superintendent of Education and National Treasurer. Judge Boyd is a pleasant gentleman, and his decisions prove him to have superior legal ability.
