As long as his health permitted he took an active part in the Sunday School and Church and regretted greatly when he was no longer able to attend. Funeral services at the Friends Church, conducted by Rev. Albert Copeland, pastor, were held Thursday afternoon, attended by a large number of friends and neighbors, after which Paoli lodge No 119 F & A M took charge and conducted their ritual service at the cemetery. Burial in the IOO [sic] cemetery. During the funeral services all business houses were closed which was very appropriate, considering the fact that Dr. Boyd was the oldest business man in the town of Paoli, having been engaged in the drug business on the same corner for more than thirty years.
