The Barber County Index, March 21, 1900.

Freddie Harris

Died: Death has again invaded the home of Mr. and Mrs. Green Harris and claimed their 18 months old baby boy, Freddie.

The same malady that caused the death of their oldest girl extended to the other children and the parents are entitled to the community's undivided sympathy and assistance.

It is a very sad trial for Mr. and Mrs. Harris and they are certainly having much more than their share of trouble.

Freddie died on Friday night, March 16, 1900 and the funeral was held on Saturday and the remains laid beside the dear one that had gone only a little more than a week before.

The many friends of the family hope to hear of a speedy recovery of the other children.


Laura HARRIS, older sister of Freddie Harris.
