|Death: ||Mar. 14, 1887|
The funeral of Mr. Daniel T. Ringgold, the faithful colored waiter of the Maryland Club, whose faithful service was terminated by his sudden death, on Monday, was buried yesterday in Laurel Cemetery. The remains were taken from his residence, No. 444 Orchard Street, to Sharp Street M.E. (Colored) Church, where services were conducted by Rev. J. W. Nutter. The body was encased in a walnut coffin, with a silver plate and he wore on his lapel, a blue silk badge of St. Ann's Immediate All Society. A number of floral tributes were sent by both white and colored friends. Among them was a handsome pillow of pink roses, bordered with yellow rosebuds, sent by the Maryland Club, the inscription in purple immortalics, reading, Maryland Club, Dan. A cross and mound and sheaf of wheat were from the waiters of the club. And a pillow from James Filone and J. C. Havez, stewards respectively of the Maryland Club and Merchants Club. The services were attended by a large number of the members of the Maryland Club, who followed the remains to the grave, to attest their esteem for his many qualities. The funeral procession into and out of the church was led by men and women of the St. Ann's Society. The chaplain led, followed by pallbearers who were selected from St. Ann's Society, Joseph's Young Aid Society and waiters of the Maryland Club. The Sun, Baltimore, Md. March 17, 1887.

I said a prayer for you today. I'm sorry that the City of Baltimore did nothing to protect your final resting place from the greed of a few.|
