PORTER, MARIAN MARGARET AND RUSSELL
One of the most pathetic bereavements we have had to record is that which has come upon Mr. and Mrs. Walter B. Porter, of Louisville, who, while visiting her sister, Mrs. Chas. W. Welch, of this place, lost both of their bright little children from that dread disease, diptheria. Little Marian Margaret, who would have been five years old the 20th of October and her little brother, Russell, who was three, the 8th of May, were stricken about the same time, one short week ago and died on Wednesday morning, Aug 1, 1894, within three hours of each other. Their burial took place at Maple Grove cemetery, Thursday afternoon, at 2 p.m., services conducted by Rev. Carr Moore. Mrs. Bessie Porter, who is well-known as the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Will Peyton, is almost prostrated by this double sorrow, having expressed some misgivings at leaving her home in Louisville, during the heated term, little dreaming that the life story of her little blossoms would, like the blighted buds, close thus their leaves, to open in another ??? of the rarest sunshine and beauty, that sees no blight. “The will of God is all in all. He makes, destroys, remakes for His good pleasure.”
