Boyd, a former citizen of the Detroit neighborhood, died at her home in Blytheville, Ark., Tuesday morning at 2 o’clock. We were unable to learn the length of sickness or cause of Mrs. Boyd’s death. Mrs. Boyd resided in this county, near Detroit, up until about six years ago, when she moved to Blytheville. She was a native of North Carolina, her home being near Salem, where her parents still reside. She was the mother of five children, and a good conscientious Christian woman. Messrs.
