Nellie by Johnnie Dabb

"Hush!" they whisper-- "baby's dead!"

Slow and sad the words they said.

Well I remember full five years ago,

Came in one morn--such a beautiful day--

Sweet little stranger, a joy to our home;

Now comes the reaper and takes her away.

Joyous her voice as the birds when they sing;

Happy her laugh as the music of May;

Bright were her eyes as the flowers of spring,

Death the great anarch has called her away.

Blessings on her little head!

"Hush!" they whisper--"baby's dead!"

"Baby, darling. Oh! why did you go?
Why did you leave me?" the fond mother cried,

Breaking her heart in its anguish and woe--

"Baby, my darling! Oh, would I had died!"

Striving to comfort, the good father said:

"God is the giver; He taketh away;

Let us not think of our pet as one dead,

But as one passed from the night unto day.

Sadly they lay the slight form to rest,

White as the flowers that wreathe round her _____ head;

Softly, they fold the hands over her breast:

"Nellie has gone to Jesus," they said.

Additional Comments: Notes: There are several different hand writings in this Bible and not all the information

is correct. Below is what I have been able  to verify.

Thomas Hite Booz, Sr. and Martha Ann Whitehead were married in Amherst, VA on 26 August 1855.

This is according to a copy of their  marriage record from the Marriage Book in the Amherst Court House.

William Erasmus Booz was born 3 December 1865 and died 27 December 1939 according to a certified copy of his Death Certificate.

Benjamin Taliaferro Booz died 3 April 1947 in Chicago, IL.

This is verified from records at Gammage Funeral Home (formerly Bisaner's Funeral Home)

 in Cedartown and from a certified copy of of his Death Certificate.

The death date on his tombstone is also incorrect.

Alice Evans and Thomas Hite Booz, Jr. were married in Sandersville, Washington Co., GA, on 23 April 1902.

This is verified from a copy  of their marriage license/certificate (Sandersville Probate Court Records in Marriage Record Book "I"

(1899-1903), page 437). There is no death certificate for Lillian Dale Booz. The 2nd birthdate entered for her is 1871.

It looks like it was 1872 and the 2 was erased and a 1 written in.

From census records, her obituary and other family records, her birth year is 1872
