Fred Herbert, son of John A. and Sarah E. Alspach, was born in Wells county, Ind., Jan 3rd 1894, and died at the Hope hospital, Fort Wayne, Ind., September 6th 1903, aged nine years, eight months and three days. In the few short years that Fred has lived he has been kind and obedient, and had bright anticipations of a useful life. But through the workings of an unseen power he has been taken away from us in the brightness of his youth, just when his thoughts and hopes had began to ripen into a knowledge of what might be before him in this life, he was called away.
Well will we remember his willingness to always do the right. In his going he leaves a father, mother, two brothers and one sister and numerous friends to mourn his departure.
He has gone with the flowers,
But his brightness he left
To be cherished in memory dear.
He has gone to his home
Where loved ones wait,
Where there is no pain to endure.
Funeral services conducted by Rev. Lewis Huffman at the U. B. church at Mt. Zion. Interment in the Woodlawn cemetery at Warren.
