Wife of Samuel Newcomer Boyd. Daughter of John Goltry and Barbara Jane McGill.


Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, August 12, 1909

Alda May Boyd, daughter of John and Barbara Goltry, was born near Russell, Iowa, Dec. 12, 1877 and died at the home of her parents, August 6, 1909, aged 31 years, 7 months and 25 days. On Dec. 31, 1895 she was joined in marriage to S. N. Boyd, of Russell, Iowa, at which place they have since made their home. Mr. and Mrs. Boyd's home was made glad by the birth of four children: Hugh, Mildred, Clell and Dwain, who are left with the faithful husband and father to mourn the loss of a loving wife and Godly mother.

It was a great comfort to Alda to spend her last hours in her father's home with her brothers and sisters, all of whom were there except her sister, Winnie. She united with the Methodist Episcopal Church in Russell on March 6, 1908 and her life has always shown the beauties of the Christian faith. She leaves her aged father and mother, five brothers and six sisters besides unnumbered friends to mourn her loss.

The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church in Russell, Saturday, August 7th, conducted by the pastor, Rev. D. J. Shenton and the interment made in the Russell Cemetery.
