ANOTHER SUDDEN DEATH
Chalres Conquest Dies Suddenly From Heart Failure
Tuesday's Mt. Ayr News contained an account of the sudden death, Monday afternoon, of CHARLES CONQUEST, a son of MR. and MRS. J.W. CONQUEST, former residents of this county, now residing near Mt. Ayr. It was thought that death was due to heart disease. The News says: "He was a young man about 21 years of age, and had been sick for several weeks with fever, but not confined to his room much of the time. Yesterday morning he arose and came to the breakfast table, saying that he felt considerably better. He was left alone in the room for a few minutes, and when his mother returned to the room, she found him dying. He died a few minutes later."
The remains were brought to this county Tuesday for burial. The family has many friends who sympathize with them in their sudden bereavement.
