DEATH OF N.H. BOYET
______
N.H. Boyet, one of the loading merchants of Dubberly and a pioneer citizen of that section of the parish, died at his home in that place early Wednesday morning from injuries sustained last Friday. While in his field last Friday he attempted to show one of his hands how to run a fertilizer distributor and had taken hold of the distributor himself and was running it when it struck a stump of root and one of the handles punched him in the stomach and threw him down, inflicting internal injuries which caused his death as stated above.
The funeral took place Thursday morning at the Fellowship graveyard, a large number of friends and relatives being present to pay the last tribute to his memory.
Mr. Boyet had been engaged in the mercantile business in Dubberly ever since the town was first started nearly or quite 30 years ago. He did a big business and acquired considerable property. He was well known in the parish, especially in ward five, and he has many friends who will regret to learn of his death. He is survived by several children, all of whom are grown. His wife preceded him to the grave several years ago.
--------------------------------
Noah H. Boyet is a merchant and farmer, and both callings have been remarkably successful. He is a native of Georgia and was born in Marion County on March 23, 1845, coming to this State and country with his parents in 1859, and from here enlisted in the Confederate Army in 1862, when but seventeen years of age. He served in the Twenty-seventh Louisiana Infantry until the close of the war, participting in the siege of Vicksburg and in several skrimishes. After the close of the war he returned to Webster Parish and turned his attention to tilling the soil, an occupation that received his attention exclusively for a number of years. In 1880 he engaged in the dry goods business, his establishment being near the south line of the parish, but upon the building of the Vicksburg, Shreveport & Pacific Railroad Mr. Boyet started a branch store at Dubberly. In 1885 he moved to this place, and here has followed merchandising up to the present time. He has a large store-room and an excellent line of goods, which he disposes of at very reasonable rate. He purchased a strip of land near the town, erected thereon a substantial residence, and has it otherwise well improved. Mr. Boyet, commenced the battle of life empty handed at the close of the war, but by the free exercise of brain and brawn and a judicious amount, of economy he has accumulated a competency. Although his school days were very limited he has acquired a fair business education, and is sufficiently versed in the affairs of every-day life to become a successful man of business. He was married on January 10, 1868, to Miss Mary Ann, a daughter of David Lard, she being a native of Louisiana and of Webster Parish, Louisiana.

Mr. Boyet and his worthy wife have had a family of eight children born to them: Daniel W., Benjamin, Shelly B., Anna, Louisa, Elizabeth, James B. and Mandil. Mr. Boyet has always been the roughly public spirited, and at all times has shown himself to be honorable in every particular, and keen and far seeing business man.
