I write to inform you of the sad death of little Elinor Hedger, oldest child and only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Hedger, formerly of Corning. Mrs. Hedger will be remembered as Lizzie Barker. Elinor was a bright, promising child, modest, and winsome. She has many friends in Corning who will be grieved to hear of her death. She was sick but a short time, but she suffered intensely. She gave testimony of the better world as her hope. She died July 14, 1911. She was 11 years, 5 months, 18 days old. She leaves her father, mother, and five brothers to mourn her loss, beside a host of relatives both here and in Corning. These worthy people have the sympathy of all.
