Daughter Iva’s death notice from Friday, 13 February 1885 Syracuse Journal (Syracuse, NE) pg. 3:

   In loving memory of IVY LEVERNIA LOY, infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Loy, who left for a better world February the 8th inst.

    Our daughter, months ago
    She [illegible] a place
    N[illegible] Her step was slow
    And full of loving grace

    Now she’s with angels fair,
    And her little bright face,
    Is free from this earth’s toiling care;
    She sings with loving grace

    And when the angel [crie]s
    On that great judgment day,
    Then we can realize
    That we can with her stay.

    Syracuse J.
