Jacksonville Daily Journal, Wednesday, Oct. 14, 1891


A son of William Watson, of Lynnville, died yesterday at his father's home. The disease which carried him off was diptheria.

(From the Jacksonville Journal of Thursday, Oct. 1, 1891: LYNNVILLE. There has been no spread of the diptheria for several days, and it is thought that with the great precautions that have been taken to prevent such a thing, our community may be relieved of the terrible dread experienced for nearly a month, but one is reminded by the afflictions of William Watson's stricken family that, "When sorrows come, they come not single spies. But in battalions." For the painful tidings came this morning (Tuesday) that Charlie, a bright 10 year old boy, is entering "the dark valley," while Fred, his oldest brother, is also quite low.)
