Mary Frances "Mollie" Lunsford Boyd
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 22, 1868
Texas, USA
Death: Jun. 24, 1938
Mount Pleasant
Titus County
Texas, USA

Mary's typed death certificate gives her parents' names as W R (William Robert) Lunsford and Annie Kuffman (probably Anna Jane Coffman). Mary is listed with her parents in the censuses of 1870 (as Mary M) and 1880 (as M M F). She married FNU Price probably about 1889. In the 1900 census, she is a widow again living with her parents, listed as Mary M Price along with a nine year old daughter, Leona P Price. I have not found a 1910 census for Mary or her parents. Sometime before 1920 she married Thomas Jefferson Boyd, who was himself widowed from Nancy Lewis Boyd. In the 1920 census, she is listed as Mollie M Boyd and in the 1930 census as Mollie Boyd. Her death certificate lists her husband as T. J. Boyd. Her death certificate and her Texas death record list her name as Mary Frances Boyd. I assume that the census names of Mary M or M M F result from joining her given name Mary with a nickname, Mollie.

Mary's death certificate gives her burial location as Old Union Cemetery in Titus County, Texas. Her second husband, Thomas Jefferson Boyd, is also buried in Old Union Cemetery, along side his first wife, Nancy Lewis, and their daughter, Millie Pearl Boyd, and her husband, William Nathan Gann. I have not confirmed that Mary Frances Lunsford was actually buried in Old Union Cemetery. Titus County genealogical records do not record her as buried in Old Union. I have created this FindAGrave memorial for her in Old Union Cemetery in hopes that a FindAGrave volunteer will find her gravestone and photograph it. Her parents are buried in Center Grove Cemetery in Titus County, but county cemetery records do not record Mary as buried in Center Grove, either.
