Occupation: Policeman
Father: G.C. Harris, born in SC

Informant: Wallace Harris, Union, SC (Boyd's brother)
DOD: 7/1/1930 at 4pm
Cause of death: Pellagra
Burial: 7/2/1930 at Wesley Chapel

He died of Pellagra which is a vitamin deficiency disease most commonly caused by a chronic lack of niacin (vitamin B3) in the diet. It can be caused by decreased intake of niacin or tryptophan, and possibly by excessive intake of leucine. It may also result from alterations in protein metabolism in disorders such as carcinoid syndrome. A deficiency of the amino acid lysine can lead to a deficiency of niacin, as well. Untreated, the disease can kill within four or five years. Treatment is with nicotinamide, which has the same vitamin function as niacin and a similar chemical structure, but has lower toxicity. The frequency and amount of nicotinamide administered depends on the degree to which the condition has progressed. Symptoms of pellagra include: Delusions, Diarrhea, Inflamed mucus membranes, Mental confusion, Scaly skin sores. It is characterized by horrible skin sores, digestive and nervous system disturbances, and eventual mental deterioration. Specific psychological symptoms of pellagra: Psychosensory disturbances (impressions as being painful, annoying bright lights, odors intolerance causing nausea and vomiting, dizziness after sudden movements); Psychomotor disturbances (restlessness, tense and a desire to quarrel, increased preparedness for motor action) Emotional disturbances
