I have had no success in finding a BOYSINGTON and have started looking in the BOYNTON family. Still not finding my GGGMother, but I did find the following.
While on vacation in Lookout Mountain, I picked up a brochure which reads in part as follows:
"Also on display at the Museum [The Battles for Chattanooga (] is this rare ceremonial sword presented to Lt. Col. Henry V. Boynton, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for gallantry at the battle of Missionary Ridge.
Boynton was also instrumental in establishing the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park."

Have you checked the New Hampshire Will books?  

Although my line is in Ipswich MA and CT, and migrating west, I run into the name while researching other lines in Maine and New Hampshire, they spread out everywhere it would seem.
