DIED--Barton, Henry (1908-1917)

Henry, the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Barton of Weston, Clark County, was called to the great beyond Thursday evening, April 26th, 1917. He was stricken suddenly Sunday afternoon and grew gradually weaker until the end. The case was diagnosed as one of spinal trouble and pneumonia and reaped its harvest swiftly and surely. Henry was a bright capable little fellow, full of life and spirit. He was nine years old the 11th of February and was an apt little pupil of the Mound School, being in fifth grade. His eager little face and winning ways will be greatly missed by his schoolmates and friends. Besides these, he leaves to mourn his early departure, a loving father and mother, a brother Elmer, a sister Albertine, and many other relatives. The funeral was held Saturday morning at ten o'clock from St. Mary's Church. Interment was made in St. Mary's Cemetery. The many beautiful floral offerings, and the large attendance at the church of sympathizing friends showed the love and esteem in which little Henry was held. The bereaved family and relative have the sympathy of all in their great sorrow.
