Mrs. Boyers was one of the early settlers of the vicinity of Lindley, where she was known by almost every person as Aunt Eliza or Grandma Boyer. A few years ago Mrs. Boyers came here from Lindley with her son W. J. who had a grocery store at the home so that he could be with her in fact for the past eight years Mrs. Boyers has been confined to her bed more or less and W. J. cared for her, and he will of course miss her more than any one.
