Romaine Tarver Boyd was admitted to the Naval Academy from Alabama on May 18, 1889 at the age of 15 years 6 months. He resigned November 23, 1889.

The Register of Alumni lists him as a non-graduate, but does not provide a date of death or any other information.

It appears that he died at the age of 75 and is buried in Alabama — the birthdate and place of birth align precisely with what is known.
