Mt. Vernon Register News
April 28, 1904

Word was received here this morning of the death of Russell Strattan, 
son of Mr. and Mrs. E. D. Strattan, of Peoria .

The little fellow’s death was due to appendicitis, and he was not able 
to stand the effects of an operation which he was forced to undergo.

Russell was a manly chap and recognized favorite.

The arrangements for the funeral have not been learned, but the body 
will be brought here probably on late Southern train tonight.
