OBITUARY ~ RAYMOND MATTHEWS
Raymond, the nine-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Fletcher Matthews (Mathews), died at his
home near Mount Ayr last Thursday [July 17, 1919]. He had not been well for some time, and a
few days before his death stepped into a hole while driving cows. He
complained of having hurt his knee, but no viable injury could be found. His
knee swelled, and he gradually grew worse until death relieved him.
services were held on Saturday. [Interment at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr.]
His mother [Rose] has been suffering with anemia and has been seriously ill since the death of Raymond.
