MINES– Fred Mines, of Adamston, son of James H. Mines, died at 6 o’clock Thursday afternoon, August 23, 1900, of pulmonary trouble.
Interment was made Saturday afternoon at 3 o’clock in the I. O. O. F. Cemetery here, Rev. R. B. McDanel officiating. The deceased was 22 years old last June and was a sturdy, quiet, unassuming and promising young man, with prospect of an honorable and useful career.
He had been in failing health more than a year prior to his death, spending some months a year ago in Colorado for his health. The family has been terribly afflicted the past year.
The mother and her sister, Miss Madisonia Pew, died little more than a year ago of typhoid fever. The father and his daughter, Miss May, were critically low of the fever, too, but recovered after long weeks of suffering. And now the youngest child, Eva, 10 or 12 years of age, has typhoid fever.
They have the sympathy of the community in their sad afflictions and bereavements.
