September 14, 1885–April 1, 1895
|Once more the community is saddened by the death of Bertie, the son of Mr. and Mrs. G. F. Howard of Clay Mills, which occurred April 1st. He was an only son and it was a severe blow on the parents to part with one they so dearly loved. He was kind and gentle to his parents, and a favorite among his playmates. Bertie Howard was born in Clay Mills, September 14, 1885, and died April 1, 1895. He was a boy of more than ordinary intelligence, always studious, and loved school. During his sickness, which was long and painful, he was patient until the end. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Bulock of Calmar, last Wednesday and the remains laid to rest in the Bethel (now known as Clay) Cemetery.
