Josephine Byrd died on April 1, 1878 and was buried in the cemetery behind Coot's Chapel just outside Armadillo, New Austin. It is unknown when she was born or how old she was when she died, as there is no birth date or year listed on her cracked and broken tombstone. She may be related to Rufus Byrd.
