Mrs. Loretta Halyard of Columbus, one of the older citizens of Colorado County, passed away at the Rosenberg Hospital Wednesday morning. She became suddenly ill Friday of last week and was rushed to the hospital for an emergency operation. Loretta Bacon was born at Seguin on October 29, 1854, and came with her parents to Columbus when she was a small child. There she grew to womanhood and was married to A.B. Halyard, son of a large plantation owner. She was the mother of five children, four of whom, and also her husband, having preceded her in death. One son, George William Halyard of Crockett, twenty-four grandchildren, forty great grandchildren, and two great great grandchildren survive. Mrs. Annie Taylor of Eagle Lake is a granddaughter. Funeral services were held from the home of her granddaughter, Mrs. Otto Miller, at 3 o'clock Thursday afternoon, interment being made in the old family cemetery on the Halyard Plantation, beside her husband, the Columbus Methodist minister conducting the services. Those from Eagle Lake attending the funeral were, Mrs. Annie Taylor, Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Taylor, Walter Taylor, James Walker, R.A. Walker and daughter, Mrs. Ted Larson, Mrs. Robert Walker, Mrs. G.B. Skelton, Mrs. John Miles, Mrs. Selma Falen and probably others whose names we failed to learn. Eagle Lake Headlight, February 19, 1937, as contributed by cypressgreen
