About Roger Black

Hurdland.
Died, Sunday, February 6th, 1898, little Roger, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Black of West Hurdland, aged 4 years. Little Roger was the pride of the family and the parents were ever dutiful to the love of this sweet flower. He contracted a cold and sore throat that developed into the incurable and dreadful diphtheria, which snuffed out the tender life almost before danger was thought of. Funeral at Brashear Monday. The family have the sympathy of Christian friends in this village in their sad affliction and sorrow. Other members of the family are suffering with something like tonsilitis [sic], but reports from there late Monday are that they are better.
