BOYLE, WILLIAM -- Listed on page 17 of the San Jacinto rolls printed in 1836 as a member of Captain Thomas H. McIntire's Company. On page 24 of the army rolls in the General Land Office he is shown as having been a member of Captain William C. Cooke's Company of New Orleans Greys in 1835, and as having been born in Pennsylvania. The Greys arrived in Texas, October 25, 1835.

The compiler has been unable to secure additional information regarding Mr. Boyle. He did not apply for the headright, bounty or donation land due him.

Written by Louis W. Kemp, between 1930 and 1952. Please note that typographical and factual errors have not been corrected from the original sketches. The biographies have been scanned from the original typescripts, a process that sometimes allows for mistakes in the new text.
