Postville Review, Sat., 12 June 1886.

Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W. Prescott, formerly of Hardin, had a terrible affliction befall them on Wednesday, at Fredericksburg, where they have resided since early spring, by the drowning of their child, C. Irving Prescott, aged two years, seven months and eighteen days. The little fellow was playing around the house and by some unknown means fell head first into the swill barrel, which was only about a third full., and was dead when he was discovered, only a few minutes afterwards. He was brought to Hardin and buried on Thursday. Death is always a terrible thing but it seems doubly so under such circumstances. We tender our sincere sympathy to the afflicted parents. We know from too much experience just how to pity them. Rev. McKim conducted the services.
