1. Book: Henry's diary entry about his marriage and wife, 1 Nov 1849. 1
. . . "On November 1, 1849, I was married at Kalmia, S. C, the summer residence of Hon. Kerr Boyce, to his pious and intelligent daughter, Nannie Johnstone. I had known her from early childhood. We were reared in the same Sabbath school. Our parents' pews in the church were almost opposite to each other. Frequently she dressed in white. I often thought that the garb was a fit and beautiful emblem of her simple and pure character. The plainness of her dressing was always to be noted in view of the fact that she was literally doted on by her father, who was probably the wealthiest man in the city, and known by all to be devoted to his children. She was really 'the pious, consistent little member of the church.' She visited the poor, sought children for the Sabbath school, and was ready for every good word and work."

4. Book: Henry's diary entry about the death of his wife, 12 Oct 1888. 1
. . . How changed all of life! October 12th, at 2 a. m., the noblest woman of earth went into sleep . . . A world with the world's best treasure gone. My earthly light - alas, alas ! . . . My earthly joy is to honor the memory of this noblest of women, truest of wives, most devoted of mothers, and most consecrated of Christians.
