Birth: Feb. 14, 1868
Mason County
Illinois, USA
Death: Feb. 4, 1884
Mason County

William B. Close, John's brother, was appointed guardian over Laura on May 14, 1880. Apparently, Mary could not cope with her. She was age 14, weak minded, has a vicious disposition and difficult to control. He had her for eight months and it made his wife, Lucy, ill. He turned control of the girl over to his daughter, Alta, and her husband, Charles Everest, in Havana, Illinois. Laura J. Close, born February 14, 1868 in Mason County, Illinois to John G. and Mary Francis Mounce Close, died February 4 1884, aged 15 years, 11 months, 21 days, buried near her father, John Close, who died April 5, 1877 and buried in Carter Cemetery, Mason County, Illinois.
