Clark County Clipper, November 17, 1927
Earl Albert McHatton, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert McHatton, was born on April
29, 1922, at the time the family were residing on a farm near Ashland. He died
in a hospital at Winfield, Monday, November 14, 1927, at the age of 5 years, 6
months and 16 days.
Just a baby he left us. He was always the sweet love of a little child. It was
the sweet affection of a mother's baby. Willful anger did not mar his tranquil
disposition. He was a pleasure when here. In going from us, he points us to
We gaze with chastened feeling on The Spoiler's work.
'Tis but the casket here;
For well do we know the precious gem has gone
To deck the Savior's sparkling diadem.
The funeral services were held from the Christian church at 2:30 p.m.,
Wednesday. Rev. T. R. Mordy delivered the funeral sermon. Interment was made
in Highland cemetery.
