Typhoid Proves Fatal

There has been much sickness in the family of Mr. and Mrs. James W. Webster who reside on the Dauhgerty farm two miles north of Carrollton. Ever since last March there has been considerable sickness there, starting with one of the daughters who had inflammatory rheumatism, and finally in August typhoid fever affected several of the other children. They had been cared for at home and at Parkland hospital at various times, but last week two of the sons, Lewis and Melvin, took such decided turn for the worse that they were carried to Parkland Saturday evening. Sunday evening at 7:30 Lewis H. Passed away.
Funeral services were held at the home Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock after which interment was made in Cemetery Hill. The pallbearers were Roy Turpin, Roy Taylor, Lee Husky, John McCoy. Milburn Husky, and Marshall Hartline. The parents are grief stricken over the loss as this was the first death to come into the family and break the ties which were so close.
Lewis would have been 20 years of age on November 11, and the family feel keenly the great loss they have suffered. Kindly hands and hearts have ministered to the family in many ways and the father tells us that they appreciate more than words can tell the kindly ministrations that have come to them, that Carrollton folks have been wondrously kind and considerate.
The family consists of the father and mother and seven children at home, one stepson resides in Johnson county
