I was looking through some microfilm yesterday for a friend of mine in search of a 1960 news article about her father’s graduation at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot at Parris Island, SC. I found that article and in the course of going through the 1958 to 1960 microfilm reel I also came across two other interesting news articles. The first article confirms that the Boyd family’s relationship with Seaside Heights is nearly 90 years old. Hugh J. Boyd, Sr., of Erlton, NJ had a summer home located at 46 Franklin Avenue since 1923. He was an engineer with Remington & Boyd which served as municipal engineers to a number of Ocean County towns including Seaside Heights and Seaside Park. He also served as a Seaside Heights councilman from 1935-1940.
