THE WESTERN STAR, 21 November 1891

One of the saddest and most sudden deaths that has occurred in this city for a long time, was the death of Fannie Jackson, which occurred at her home last Sunday. The deceased was the second child of W. J. and Ella Jackson and was aged 13 years. She was taken ill Thursday of last week, and she was not thought to be seriously ill until a few hours before her death. All that medical skill could do seemed to be of no avail. After her death, Drs. Laughhead and Halliday made a postmortem examination, and concluded that death was caused from a substance supposed to be chewing gum, which she had swallowed, and it lodged in the smaller
intestine at a point where it intersects with the larger intestines and formed a pus or sack in the intestine, which stopped the passage of the intestines, causing inflammation to set in, and death to follow. It was
a very sad death in our community and is regretted by all, and reminds us all again of the uncertainties of life.

The funeral took place from the M. E. church at 10 o'clock Tuesday, and the remains were followed to the last resting place by a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends.
