J. Frank Loyd Tombstone

In February the announcement is in the Crittenden Press that a splendid  new monument has been erected on the lot of J. F. Loyd in the New Cemetery, which is Mapleview.  It is a double monument for both Mr. Loyd and his wife.  This is one of the large monuments in the cemetery and is a beautiful one.  It was made from the rough stone at the works of Henry and Henry.

Nannie Ellen Loyd, was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Bradley.  She married J. Frank Loyd on in January 1887.  Mrs. Loyd died March 25, 1921 of diabetes.

J. Frank Loyd was a well liked and respected citizen of Marion for many years.  He was City Marshall of Marion in the late 1800's and early 1900's.  He died a little over a year after his wife, on June 26, 1922.

This picture of J. Frank Loyd and his wife, Nannie, is on the back side of their tombstone.  An excellent photo after all these years.  Mr. Loyd is in his City Marshall's uniform.  Picture made March 26, 2010.
