"TWO DEATHS FROM GRIP
A Green Street Family Suffer a Double Calamity

The Kille family, residing at 1822 Green street, one of the wealthiest and oldest in the neighborhood, has been visited by grip, and two members have died from the edects [sic] of it. Yesterday afternoon the bodies of the two sisters were interred in Laurel HIll Cemetery.

There were five of them originally, four sisters and a brother. They had lived together for years, each attending to the wants and wishes of the other, and all were well past the half century mark. Strange to say, they never married, and seemed content to be all in all to each other. About ten days ago three of them were stricken down with the grip. Mr. Kille, who had it in the mildest form, quickly recovered: and Miss Anna E. Kille seemed likely to survive. But in spite of all that medical skill could do, Miss Mary Kille succumbed on Saturday last: and on Monday her sister Emma E. followed her. They were seventy-nine and eighty-one years old respectively."
