BIRTH NOTICE: Brown County World - November 16, 1900

Mr and Mrs H.C. Sewell are rejoicing over the birth of a daughter.


DEATH NOTICE: Fairview Enterprise - March 16, 1901

Henry Sewell's little girl died Wednesday morning. The interment took place at the Old Fairview Cemetery Thursday afternoon. The child was about one year old, and the idol of the family. Mr. and Mrs. Sewell have the sympathy of the public in their great bereavement.


The following is from a scrapbook belonging to Lyle Hinz of Hiawatha, Kansas:

HENRY C. SEWELL'S LOSS. The home of H.C. Sewell and wife has recently been darkened by bereavement. On Thursday, March 14, they laid away the remains of their baby, Lola Ada, aged 4 months and 12 days. The fact that this is their third family loss in three years renders this one peculiarly distressing. Great sympathy is felt for the mother, who has felt the strain so keenly as to cause her friends anxiety on her behalf.

The funeral service was held at the home. Rev. T.W. Harwood gave the address, speaking words of hope and comfort for the sufferers. Singers from the Fairview Congregational Church gave familiar selections with much sweetness and feeling. The remains of the little one rest with her brother and sister in the Old Fairview Cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. Sewell feel that they cannot express in words their feelings of gratitude to relatives, friends and neighbors who have helped and shown the kindness in their time of trouble.


CONTRIBUTOR'S NOTE: While there is a stone memorializing baby Lola in Henry's family plot in the Mount Hope Cemetery, according to both of these reports she was actually buried in Old Fairview Cemetery, which is also located in Brown County, Kansas.
