February 14, 1907
Died at their home in Bethany, Mo., HAZEL MARIE, infant daughter, of MR. and MRS. W.H. COX, on Thursday, January 10, 1907, aged eight months and two days. Funeral services were held at the home on the 11th at 11 o'clock by Rev. Golightly, Pastor of the Christian Church. In the afternoon, the remains were brought to Leon where they were met at the train by relatives and tenderly borne to the Leon Cemetery where appropriate services were held by Rev. Wm. Biggs, who spoke words of comfort in a beautiful prayer, to the sorrowing friends, after which the beautiful little form was laid to rest beside it's grandmother and aunt, MRS. MARY POST and daughter, LULU, there to await the glorious resurrection morn.
Little HAZEL by her bright and winning ways was endeared to all who knew her. The parents, grandparents and friends have the sympathy of all in their sad bereavement.
In just one month on the same date of the month, February 10, the death angel visited the home of ERNEST COX, brother of W.H. COX, also of Bethany, Mo., and removed their infant daughter, VINNIE BERNICE, born December 3, 1906. Services were held at their home by the same Minister, Rev. Golightly, on the 11th of February at eleven o'clock and again the sad journey was made to Leon and services at the grave by Rev. Wm. Biggs made very impressive by being the second death in the family in so short a time. The beautiful little sleeper was placed beside its little cousin and there amid tears and sad hearts, we leave them with the inspiring hope that we may meet them again. It is needless to say, sympathy is extended to the parents and friends.
Dearest babes thou has left us,
Here thy loss we deeply feel,
But 'tis God that hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
