Rubie Byers

Rubie, oldest daughter of Bro.Lovell and Mary Byers, was born August 22, 1891 and died March 22, 1897, aged 5 years and 7 months.
Rubie was a lovely child an was held in high esteem by all who knew her.
Rubie, thou was mild and lovely,
Gentle as the summer breeze;
Pleasant as the air of evening,
When it floats among the trees.
