Nellie Hayter

Shawano County Journal

Friday, 2 Jun 1882

Another sad death occurred in the family of H. HAYTER this week. NELLIE, aged eleven, was taken ill last week with what at first was supposed to be mumps, but proved to be diphtheria in its most malignant form. The disease assumed a serious nature on Sunday, and medical aid was summoned, but without avail she breathed her last on Monday morning and was buried in the afternoon of the same day. The grief stricken family have the most earnest sympathy of all in this, their second bereavement.
