THE WESTERN STAR, 25 August 1888
Obituary of BELLE BOYD
DEATH OF MISS BELLE BOYD

A Young And Promising Life Cut Short.

There is scarcely a home in this broad land but what has felt the heavy land of the dark winged messenger of death. A few weeks ago Miss Belle Boyd was in the full vigor of health, with life stretching out before her in all its varied promises and joys; today her body lies beneath the sod in Crown Hill cemetery, and her soul has entered upon a new and higher life amid the ecstasies of heaven. The deceased departed this life last Monday evening at 8 o'clock, after a three weeks illness, from
ulcer of the stomach. The burden of grief that has fallen upon her father and mother cannot be told, and the sorrow of her friends and relatives is to profound for public mention.

Miss Belle Boyd was 19 years old, handsome, graceful, unselfish, genial and beloved by all her acquaintances for her sweetness of nature, gentle disposition and many accomplishments. The community mourns her untimely
death and extends condolence to the grief stricken parents and relatives.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Hutchinson at the family residence, at 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, and a large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives followed the remains to their last resting place. And what a sigh of grief went forth as the cold clods rattling upon the coffin announced the burying forever from sight one of our most worthy and esteemed young ladies.
