Nearly a Centenarian - S. Gaston, A 99 Year Old Pioneer Nears the Divide...
The many friends of S. Gaston, an esteemed pioneer of Thayer County, will be pained to learn that he is quite low, with no hopes for his recovery, since he suffered a stroke, a week ago last Saturday. He is unconscious, and takes no nourishment. Grandpa Gaston is 99 years old, and we had earnestly hoped he would live to reach the century mark.
