From the LeMars Sentinel, Friday, November 8, 1907, Page 2, Column 3:
Seney--The angel of death entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. Chris Lancaster Saturday about three o'clock and quietly carried the spirit of their youngest son to his Maker above. Marion William Lancaster was born at LaBarge, Wyoming, September 7, 1905 and died November 2, 1907, near Maurice, Iowa, at the age of two years, one month and twenty-six days. Marion was just beginning to talk readily and his cunning ways and sayings endeared him to the hearts of every one who knew him. Dr. Oggle, of Maurice, was called Friday evening and it was believed to be only croup, but Saturday the doctor pronounced it diptheria and in spite of all that loving hands could do the little one succumbed to the dreadful malady. It was a hard blow to the father and mother and was doubly so because they were quarantined and were thus deprived of the consolation of funeral services at their home. Loving hands took the little form and tenderly carried him to the cemetery at Seney, where Rev. C. F. Hartzell and a few friends and relatives of the sorrowing parents administered the last rites and in the stillness of the early morning of November 3rd consigned little Marion into the keeping of the Great Eternal Father. Friends and neighbors extend their heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved parents and family. At this writing no others of the family are sick.
