Brainerd Tribune, Saturday, June 25, 1881 under Local News – Death of Baby George A. Barclay.
1) Mr. and Mrs. G.A. Barclay desire to express their heartfelt thanks to the citizens of this place for their kind sympathy and attentions manifested during their recent bereavement, and for the assistance rendered during the last solemn rites at the funeral of their lamented child.
2) A sad occurrence transpired in the family of Mr. George Barclay, postmaster at Pine River, last Saturday. Their infant child, about seventeen months old, had in some manner got hold of a bottle of German cough balsam, and drank the whole of it. No physician being nearer Pine River than Brainerd, Mr. and Mrs. Barclay immediately started with the child for this place. But the effects of the potion were to speedy, as just upon arriving in town the child expired. This is a very severe blow to the bereaved parents, and the sympathies of the community are heartily enlisted in their behalf. The remains were interred in the Brainerd cemetery on Monday.
