Boyd, John H.
KILLED--At the battle of Kinesaw Mountain, June 27th, JOHN H. BOYD, Co., B, 121st O. V. I., son of Robert G. and Rebecca H. Boyd, of Marion County, Ohio, aged 22 years.
The deceased was a young man of amiable disposition, of good natural abilities a dutiful son, an affectionate brother, a brave soldier, and a consistent Christian. Nearly two and a half years ago, he made a profession of religion in connection with the Presbyterian church of Pisgah. During his brief period of Christian profession, he gave every evidence of sincere and growing piety. His letters from the army always breathed the spirit of the true Christian soldier. He was killed instantly by a shot through the head, and we cannot doubt that he was translated from the horrors of the battle-field to the land of everlasting peace. C. H. P.
