STRICKEN WITH PARALYSIS
MISS JENNIE LINK FALLS TO PAVEMENT UNCONSCIOUS ON CHESTNUT STREET.
Second Stroke of Paralysis Received by Aged Lady Resident of the City May Prove Fatal.–Condition quite Critical.
The Clarksburg Telegram., June 05, 1903, pg. 3
Miss Jennie Link was stricken with paralysis about 9 o’clock Saturday morning as she was passing Daniel Boughner’s residence on Chestnut Street. She fell to the pavement unconscious.
She was carried into the Boughner residence by two or three persons who saw her fall, and placed in a bed. A hurry call for doctors was sent in and in a short time Drs. R. D. Morrison, W. P. Goff and C. R. Ogden were at her bedside.
They rendered their medical services and the patient rallied somewhat, but her condition is very serious. This is the second stroke of paralysis she has received and it makes it all the more serious.
In the event she rallies sufficiently she will be taken to the hospital for treatment.
Miss Link is an aunt of Mrs. Charles O. Finlay and has been making her home with her niece on Mulberry street. She is an aged lady. The relatives have the gravest doubts of her recovery.
