LeMars Sentinel, Friday, February 6, 1891, Page 4, Column 3:
Jackson--Tuesday, Feb. 3, 1891, of congestion of the lungs, little
Harvey, the seven months old babe of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Jackson.
The angels came and plucked the little bud from earth, and carried it
to a land of perpetual sunshine; there to blossom where no frost or chilling
wind can ever touch, or blight, or wither.
One of our great minds has truly said, "T'were vain to try to gild a
grief with words", but we can grieve with and for the sorrowing ones. It is
all a friend can do. God, alone, can comfort this afflicted family, while
they feel so sorely the loss of their little darling.
A little child of Wm. Jackson, aged about one year, died of lung fever, Feb. 10 (sic Feb. 3). Funeral services were held Friday at the M. E. church and interment in the Seney cemetery. The family has the sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement.
