His obituary in the Neosho Times read: "James T. Boyd, know as "Uncle Jimmy" by nearly every one, and probably the oldest citizen in Newton County (for he had lived here since 1838), died at this old home near Diamond Saturday, the 13th, after a short illness. He was born in Tennessee in 1830 and had reached the age of 84 years, 8 months and 25 days. He was married to Emily F. Davison October 21st, 1853. To this union were born 14 children as follows: G.W., J.C., C.M., Paris, Leonard, Edgar, Alta, and Bert Boyd, Mrs. Luella Hardin, Mrs. Belle Riggs, Mrs. Effa Wilson and Mrs. Dona Robinson, two having gone on to the other world. There are 58 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren. Funeral services were conducted Monday at the house by Rev. H.A. Wood, the servon being based on the text in Psalms 90:10, and the services at the graveyard were conducted by the Masonic Order. Many were present from Neosho. Interment was in the old family graveyard on the Boyd farm near the house."
