LeMars Sentinel, Tuesday, May 25, 1886, Page 4, Column 2:

We are pained to note the death of Mr. and Mrs. O. L. Britton's only baby age nine months. The little darling passed away Saturday night. The funeral services took place at North Fredonia at 2 o'clock p.m. today and a large number followed the little baby to the Seney cemetery, where the remains were interred. Rev. Benedict conducted the services. We join with the entire community in extending sympathy to the bereaved parents who are thus so severely afflicted.

~Note: Date of death on the tombstone is 23 May 1886, aged 8 mos, 17 das

[Contributor's Note--This child was Ernest Britton, who is buried in the Seney cemetery and shares a headstone with his sister, Gracie Britton, who died in 1887 and their mother, Nellie Britton, who died in 1888.]
