|Birth: ||Oct. 31, 1886|
|Death: ||Jun., 1967|
Celia Cain Boyce was born to Simon and Lena Gee Cain (see source data below). She was the sister of Florence Cain (died Nov. 28, 1928*) and Lear Cain Hail (died Sep. 1980), and mother to Rosser Boyce.
Her funeral was conducted at the Prairie Grove Baptist Church (June 16, 1967), Rev. C. Alexander officiating.
Source Data: According to Hood Funeral Home (Emory), guest/memorial booklet, Mrs. Boyce was born Oct. 10, 1884 and her age was 82 yrs, 8 months, and 3 days. Yet, the Texas Department of Health Bureau of Vital Statistics Certificate of Birth (issued Apr. 24, 1947) records Mrs. Boyce's date of birth as Oct. 31, 1886. The 1886 date appears to be more accurate because Simon Cain was born in 1861 (A SLAVE) and died Mar. 8, 1921*. Lena Gee was born in 1868 and died Mar. 14, 1923*. Simon was 25 and Lena 18 (as recorded on the certificate of birth) at the time of Celia's birth.
