Obituary ~ Roy Chapen

The Leon Reporter
Leon, Decatur County, Iowa
Thursday, October 30, 1919, Page 12

Dr. C. E. Lovett, of this place, reports a sad case of the death, last Friday, by poisoning, of a little one and half year old child named Roy Chapen, whose parents run a restaurant at Woodland. The little child in some way got hold of a box of pills while playing about the house and swallowed about half of them before it was discovered by the parents. Dr. Lovett was immediately called but the little one died from the effects of the poison about 5 minutes before he reached that place.

~ Lineville Tribune
