EDDYVILLE ADVERTISER, Eddyville, Iowa, Saturday, March 31, 1877, Vol. IX, No. 6, Page 5, Column 3
DIED --- In this city, Friday, March 23, 1877, of typhoid pneumonia, Mrs. Lucinda BOYD, wife of R. W. BOYD, Esq.
The deceased was born in Logan county, Ohio, Oct. 15, 1826, and emigrated, with her parents, to this city, in the fall of 1849. Her maiden name was POWERS. She and Mr. BOYD were united in marriage in this city August 18th, 1850. There were born to them two children --- Carrie and Harry. The former is now an amiable and accomplished young lady; the latter is growing up into manhood with bright prospects; and both are highly esteemed by their associates and the community at large. Their loss of a mother is a severe affliction, but we trust and believe their instruction from her, and the guidance of a father's hand and heart, together with escellent inherent qualities of heart and mind, will fit them to be useful and honored citizens.
Mr. BOYD has been in delicate health for years, but the past year her health appeared much improved, until attacked, eight days before he death, with the disease that resulted fatally.
She united with the M. E. church in this place years ago, but afterwards withdrew; remaining firm, however, in her faith in the Bible and the Christian religion.
She was devoted to her family, and was abundantly blessed in seeing her husband occupy a prominent position in society, and her children growing up to manhood's estate, esteemed by all who know them. She had her reward for her labors, so that come what may, to her, in the future, her works will follow her, to the blessing of mankind.
The funeral was attended at the Congregational church Sunday, 25th inst., by a crowed house. Rev. Roswell FOSTER delivered an able address on the "Immortality of the Soul." The remains were deposited in the city cemetery.
