Died: At the residence of his parents in this city on Wednesday evening Oct. 24, 1888 at 6 o'clock p.m. Frankie W., son of Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Starkweather, age 14 years and 13 days.
A deep gloom was cast over this entire community on last Wednesday evening when it was announced that little Frankie's spirit had taken its flight to its Maker. He had been a patient sufferer from that dread disease diptheria and succumed to its power after a lapse of thirteen days.
He was an unusually bright boy, was born in this city and had a large circle of friends which will miss him forever. The blow is a sad one and the entire community mourns with the stricken family in their deep affliction.
Funeral services were conducted at the M. E. church Thursday at 2 o'clock p.m by Rev. J. E. Moore and the little remains followed to the cemetery by a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends and there deposited to await the final call of the Master.
