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.
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
