Lord, Sylva (19 MAY 1834 - 21 APR 1913)

Funeral services were held over the remains of Mrs. Sylva Lord at her late home at Nettleton's Corners, Wednesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. F. M. Prucia, and the body was taken to Arlington, S.D., for interment beside that of her husband and a little daughter. Her son, Elmer Lord, who with his sisters, had been a faithful watcher at her bedside during the long weeks of illness until the death came on Monday evening, April 21, 1913, accompanied the remains to their final resting place.

Sylva E. Livingston was born in Hill, N. H., May 19, 1834, and was married to Eastman Lord in 1854. They came west and settled at Brodhead, Wis., and later immigrated to Minnesota, remaining there eighteen years and then moving to Arlington, S.D., which was their home for twenty years. While living there Mr. Lord died. Mrs. Lord came to this vicinity twelve years ago, with her son Elmer, and daughter Miss Adriella. Twelve children were born to Mrs. Lord, two sons, Elmer of Humbird, Clark County, Wis.; and Alvin of Douglas, Minn.; and five daughters, Miss Adriella of Humbird, Mrs. Minnie Groesbeck of Charles City, Iowa, Mrs. Eva Sally of Douglas, Minn., Mrs. Lillie Soden of Sprague, Wash., and Mrs. Emma Heath of Brookings, S. D., survive her. She was a God-fearing woman, loved and respected by all who knew her. The sorrowing relatives have the sympathy of all in their hour of sorrow.
