Two Year Old Montrose Boy Died From the Effects of an Accident

Montrose Journal: Glenn Edwin Jaster, aged two years, five months and four days, son of Mrs. Emma Jaster, died at the family home on the Middle road, a short distance below Montrose, Monday during at 9 o'clock October 2, 1908. Death was caused by being kicked or stepped upon by a horse.

On last Sunday morning at 8 o'clock the child was found crying in the yard in which a horse was running loose, when questioned he said the horse had stepped on him. He seemed to be badly hurt and a physician was immediately sent for. Not a bruise could be detected on his little body, but he was injured internally and suffered until Monday morning when he breathed his last.

The death of the little child is doubly sad owing to the fact that on June 19, 1908, his father, George Jaster, died suddenly in his chair, of heart trouble which makes the burden doubly hard for the widow and mother.

Only the memory of the lovely boy is left, yet how sweet, how uplifting its influence. For after all, death is but the slipping off of the outer body.

The funeral occurred yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the residence. The Rev. Cresswell of the Presbyterian church officiating. The sympathy of the entire community is extended to the grief stricken mother and family.
