Rockdale, Milam Co., Texas, April 1. -- Boyd Taylor, 88, died at his home near Milano. The funeral was under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity, with District Judge Watson of Cameron officiating. The Rev. Polk C. Webb had charge of the religious service. He had lived in Milano district for forty years. He was a veteran of the Civil War. Dallas Morning News, April 2, 1928


Uncle Boyd Taylor of Milano is 83 years old. He scorns the ease of modern day transportation and rides his gray charger as in the days when he followed Nathan B. Forrest, the peerless cavalry leader of the South. Uncle Boyd rode to Cameron from his home near Milano. He sets his horse as straight and graceful as in the days when he rode to the defense of Dixie. "I can ride a horse ten miles further in a day than any man in the country," said Uncle Boyd when asked if his advanced age did not interfere with his going. He came to Texas from his native state of Alabama. He was born April 6, 1840, and on last Friday was 83 years old. Cameron Herald, April 12, 1923
