|Birth: ||Jun. 30, 1906|
|Death: ||Aug. 10, 1908|
Paul Lewis Cloyd, son of Sampson and Alice Cloyd, was born June 30, 1906, and departed this life August 10, 1908, aged two years, one month and ten days. Paul was a kind and affectionate child, and while his stay here was short, he had learned to take thought of the needs of his parents, brothers and sister. He manifested this even in his sickness by telling his papa at different times to go to his dinner. His little mind was bright and he was concious up till the last.
He was a little prince because his life was pure and innocent and God saw fit to take him as a jewel to help beautify the kingdom of heaven. Our loss is his and heaven's gain.
A precious little one from us has gone,
a voice we loved is still,
A place is vacant in our home
That never can be filled.
He leaves a father, a mother, two brothers, one sister and many relatives and friends to mourn his departure. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Earl Farmer at the Deciples (sic) Church at Palestine. Internment in the Palestine Cemetery.
