Boyd, Levi
Levi Boyd - La Veta Advertiser - December 3, 1898 - Died - On Wednesday November 30, 1898 of heart failure, Levi Boyd, aged 64 years and 9 months. Late on Wednesday evening word was received in town that Levi Boyd had been found dead that morning at his ranch on the Upper Cuchara. The news was so startling that at first it was hardly believed but upon investigation we find that a son of one of his neighbors called at the house for awhile before continuing his journey home and finding a good fire on the hearth proceeded to warm himself and after waiting quite a time, started to get on his horse but wondered why Levi was not around. As he mounted his saddle he noticed footprints in the new snow and that the prints went only towards the outhouse and did not return. Getting off his horse he followed the trail and found Mr. Boyd sitting down with his pipe up towards his left ear and his elbow resting on his knee, with the other hand lying across his stomach. The boy spoke to him but he answered not, so the lad headed to the house of Asa Arnold and told the news that Levi Boyd was dead. Mr. Arnold hurried up to the ranch, a distance of two miles, and found the words too true but the body was then still warm except the upper portion of his ears which had turned cold. He commenced to work with the body to restore animation bit it was too late, life was extinct. He informed other neighbors and words were brought to Sol Boyd, his brother, who went out to the ranch to prepare the remains for interment. The corpse was brought in on Thursday and on Friday the funeral occurred. Everybody that knew Levi can remember him as one of nature's noblemen, a man who acted and lived as one who believed in the principles of the Christian Church, of which he was a member. He has resided in Huerfano County since 1880 and in his death our community loses a man whose place it will be hard to fill. - Levi Boyd - Walsenburg World - December 8, 1898 - Levi Boyd Died - On Wednesday, Nov. 30, 1898, of heart failure, Levi Boyd, aged 64 years and 9 months.
