From the January 3, 1884 LaFayette Sun:
Little Minnie Boyd, a ten-year-old daughter of Mrs. Augustus Boyd, who resides five miles south of town, died last Monday morning. She had been confined to her bed about four months.
From the January 17, 1884 LaFayette Sun:
In Memory of Minnie Boyd
While we humbly bow to the will of our kind Heavenly Father in this dispensation of his providence, we are impressed with the uncertainty of this life. None of us had a promise of longer life than Minnie Boyd, yet in a few short months she was carried by the angels to her fatherís house. Minnie perished like a flower from her motherís arms, and every recollection is a pang; yet her loss is Heavenís gain; and while the mother and family mourn, Minnie with the angels rejoice.
The ties that unite them are not broken. They are too strong for deathís stroke. They are made for the joys of eternal friendship.
Jas. J. A.
NOTE: It was not unusual during this time for several death notices/obituaries for the same person to appear in the newspaper. gb
