Burial of the Gypsy Queen - Jentie Jeffrey Harrison, the young gypsy queen, who died at Jackson, Miss., on Dec. 31, 1886, was buried at Dayton, O., in the gypsy lot at Woodland the other day.  At her death the body was embalmed and sent north.  She was the daughter of Henry and Tallie Jeffreys, who own large tracts of land near Dayton, and are related to the Stanleys, who reign over about twenty tribes that make their summer home in the Miami valley.  Besides the immediate relatives, about 100 gypsies were present.  The burial is the fourth of the kind that has occurred in Dayton since 1857, and, as on former occasions, attracted crowds of people to view the street pageant.  The funeral cortege consisted of a caravan of thirty large wagons loaded with gypsy families and carrying all their camp and household equipage.  Following each wagon were the horse and dogs of the family, numbering in some cases fifty animals.  The procession was nearly a mile in length and there were in line about 500 horses. A squad of police prevented the entrance to the grounds of the crowd.  The Rev. Daniel Berger, of the United Brethren church, conducted the religious services, consisting of prayer, Scriptural readings and a sermon.  The mourners and relatives sat about the grave while the caravan of wagons, horses and dogs was kept continually circling around the grave on the winding roadways.  When the minister concluded, the mourners rose and began low chant in a gypsy dialect.  The refrain was caught up by the occupants of the moving caravan and soon the air resounded with the moaning and wailing.  Young gypsy girls carried flowers of scarlet hue and showered them in the grave.  They cried: "Good by, Jentie! Good by, sweet queen!  Good by!"  These manifestations of grief continued until the pastor bade the mourner retire.  (Anniston, The Anniston Star, 26 Apr 1887, p2.  Transcribed by Heather Holley)
