He leaves to mourn his loss a father and a mother, two sisters and two brothers. A spell of sickness in infancy caused the loss of his mental faculties, and he could neither speak nor realize anything. He has been a constant care to his faithful parents, who never let aught prevent the most earnest watchfulness. They have the sympathy of a large circle of friends.
