Wayne County Missouri 

Submitted by Sharon Hackworth

S. A. (Dolph) Ward, of Turkey Creek, Wayne County, Mo., Dec 13, 1905.

Little "Linn," as he was affectionately called, was an unusually bright child, just budding into that most interesting period of life, the entrance from infancy into childhood days. 

All that loving hearts could do was done to keep him among those who loved him most dearly, but and All-wise Providence saw proper to pluck the budding flower ere the rude and sterner forces of a more mature life had marred the beauty and fragrance of its loveliness, to transplant it in that realm of the blest, safe from all harm to bloom for evermore in the  radiance of Him who said:  "Suffer little children to come unto me," etc.

To his precious memory these lines are dedicated.  A Friend.
