Wife Mary is also buried in same plot, did not see an obvious inscription when I was there in the fall taking photos. Can double check when the snow is gone. She passed away on 8 Feb 1906 and was buried on 10 Feb 1906.
Mysterious Death
Thursday, Feb. 8, Mrs. Board was found dead at her home, on the outskirts of mason city, Iowa, with a bullet wound in her breast, just above the heart. A 22 calibre Stevens' rifle stood beside the rocking chair in which she was seated, apparently asleep. At first it was thought suicide, but all indication point to the fact that she was murdered. A man with a gun had been seen in the vicinity by children skating and it is thought he is the guilty person.
