***********************
VICTIM OF WHITE PLAGUE
Oliver Rivers, a former resident of Culross,
died at Albuquerque, New Nexico.
Having contracted that dreaded disease, tuberculosis, he left 18 months ago thinking
to regain his health, but had not gone in time, for on January 25 he passed to his last resting place.
It is hard on the family for just 14 months
ago his sister, Rubie, passed with the same disease. His wife predeceased him seven years ago with the same malady,
He was laid to rest in New Mexico, but his mother, Mrs. Robbins, had a memorial service at her home in Detroit, in honor of her son buried so far from home and away from all
his beloved ones.
********************************
Son of Nelson Russell RIVERS
and Melissa CAMPBELL.
