"Died at Jones Prairie"

Mrs. H. B. Crook died last Monday at her home at Jones Prairie a victim of influenza. Mrs. Crook is one of Milam county's most esteemed ladies and her sad and untimely death will be a great shock to her many friends and a loss that can never be filled to this family. This good woman, whose every thought was of her dear children and husband was ill for only a few days and it is doubly sad to know that was claimed by the grim reaper of death because of the large family she was raising. Besides her husband there are nine children who will mourn her loss.

Mr. Crook and a number of the children are also reported quite ill with the malady that claimed their wife and mother.

The deceased was a good Christian woman and has lived her life in the fear of God, her days were spent in deeds for a better humanity and her reward will be an everlasting home above.

The HERALD joins in extending sympathy to the bereaved.
