Ringgold Record, 1879
NOTICE of DEATH.
DIED--In Benton township, on the 20th inst., of cholera infantum. Eva Florence, daughter of Alfred and Nettie HESS, aged
five months and fourteen days.
Little Eva was brought to this county in early spring, remained in good health, and was the
hope of the happy parents until a few weeks previous to her death. But she is gone; is removed from earth; she blooms no
longer around the domestic enclousre. Heaven is the richer for our loss. Transplanted to Eden she will flourish for ever.
"This lovely, but so young and fair,
Called hence by early doom;
Just came to show show sweet a flower
In Paradise would bloom.
The parents have the sympathy of the entire community in their hour of
sorrow and bereavement. --B. D. HIMEBAUGH.
