Death of Frank Russell
F. Russell, who made his home with Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Nye passed away at their home Wednesday morning, after a lingering illness of two weeks with pneumonia. All that loving hands and medical skill could do was done, but of no avail.
Had he lived until May 14, 1917, he would have been twenty-one years of age.
The funeral services will be conducted by Rev. Joseph Snowden, pastor of the Baptist church Thursday morning at 10 o'clock from the Olcott church and the remains will be laid to rest in the Olcott cemetery.
Friends extend sincere sympathy to the bereaved.
