  • There is a minimal entry for Manus C Boyd on the FindaGrave registry, with a photo of his gravestone.  Interestingly, the stone reports his birth date only by the year 1914.  His death certificate reports the exact date of death which is 19 May 1913.  I conclude that the birth year was wrong on the stone, since his mother was the informant for the death certificate.  The death certificate does not report the place of birth.
