I have the original newspaper clipping of the obituary for Mary Eliza Mansfield Baynor who married Ira May Hardy, for anyone who is interested. Obituary follows:
Mrs. Mary E. Hardy Kinston - Mrs. Mary Eliza Mansfield Baynor Hardy, 69, wife of Dr. Ira M. Hardy of Kinston, died at her home at 3 p.m. Thursday after a long illness. Funeral arrangements are incomplete but interment will be in Oakdale cemetery in Washington, N.C., with the Rev. Edwin F. Mosley, rector of St. Mary’s Church here officiating. Surviving in addition to her husband are one son, Jesse Hardy of Morehead City; three daughters, Mrs. David Jackson Cooper of Columbus, Ga., Mrs. Dempsey Hodges of Kinston and Mrs. Norwood Whitley of Stantonsburg; 13 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
If you would like me to send to you scanned on copy of this newspaper clipping, let me know. I also have 2 pictures of Mary Eliza Mansfield Baynor. One is of her by herself when she was in her 20’s, and another is of her with her husband, Dr. Ira May Hardy, their children, and 2 grandchildren.
