West Side Child Buried Thanksgiving Day
Wayne H. Adams, the four year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Ross Adams of _ _ _ _ Cayuga street died last Wednesday afternoon. Interment was made at St. John's cemetery Thursday afternoon. The burial of the child brings to light a rather unusal incident.
Dr. John Baker, whose tragic death is told about in another column of this paper, was attending the child and had reported the death to Undertaker Ed Mercer.
Dr. Baker was killed before he signed the death certificate and the child was buried without that document being filled out.
