Bio shared with me by Joseph:

Louis had taken a nap near a window- It was a hot day and the windows were open. His parents had some fly paper in the windows from the bothersome flies. When the parents checked on Louis in what seemed a normal nap time, they found that Louis had played with the fly paper and had suffocated as it was extremely sticky. Louis was buried in a new cemetery, Fairlawn, located at 30th and western Oklahoma City, OK and was the very first person buried in that cemetery. That cemetery is in the middle of Oklahoma City now. William Eckroat, son of John Ananias, said his parents had mourned so for that baby and that they cried openly for quite some time... he thought they never would get over it.
