THE WESTERN STAR, 23 November 1906

Another home is darkened, and hearts are made sad by the presence of Death! George, the 15-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Aldridge, died on Wednesday evening of last week after an illness of only 24 hours. he had been ailing for some time with a severs cold, but no fears were entertained in regard to his condition until Tuesday evening, when the dread malady, scarlet fever, fastened its hold upon him, and he lingered
only a few hours.

His death is peculiarly sad from the fact that, owing to the nature of the disease, no one was allowed at the house, and no funeral services could be held. Undertaker M. G. Stevenson of Ashland took charge of the body which wa laid to rest in the Ashland cemetery. George was a bright, intelligent boy and was a favorite with all who knew him. He was converted, and joined the Methodist church about a year ago, and had since lived in the simple, confiding faith of the Christian. It can only be believed that God "has claimed His own." he leaves a father, mother and 3 brothers to mourn his untimely death.

The sincere sympathy of the entire community is extended to the heart-broken family in this, their time of great sorrow.
"Oh death, where is thy sting,
Oh grave where is thy victory?" Pearl.
Nov. 21, 1906.
The family of N. J. Aldridge is still quite sick with scarlet fever. The condition of Mrs. Aldridge and her daughter, Florence, is considered critical.
