Martha Caroline Leaverton

Trouble comes fast for some people. Especially is this true in the family of Mrs. Nancy Leaverton of Chatham, where death claimed two members of the family within three hours. At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon the grim hand of death seized Miss Martha C. Leaverton, 20 years old, one of Mrs. Leaverton's four daughters. At 6 o'clock the final summons came and stole away from the sorrow-stricken family the only son, Henry Leaverton, 25 years old.

Both deaths occurred at St. John's hospital and were the result of pneumonia. Surviving the young people are their grief-stricken mother and three sisters, Misses Nettie, Ida and Lucille Leaverton.

The remains were removed from the hospital to the undertakng parlors of Charles T. Bisch & Sons, and were later taken to the family residence. IL State Journal, Springfield, IL 11-27-1918
