WIFE OF C R BOYD

During June of 1862, a daughter, Martha (Mattie) Laura was born to James and Sarah Whitesides. Before their child was one year old, James was killed in battle during the Civil War at Montgomery, Alabama on May 4, 1863. He was buried in a military cemetery there. On September 2, of 1864, Sarah died, leaving Mattie Laura an orphan. After Sarah's death, her father James Keys became Mattie Laura's guardian. James subsequently died in 1866, and Mattie Laura's uncle and aunt, Thomas and Martha Keys Whitesides, became her guardians.
