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 Heaven's hope.

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.

The Clipper joins with the community in extending sympathy to the bereaved parents.

We wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to our neighbors and friends who were so kind in extending help and sympathy to us in our bereavement of our beloved child; also for the many beautiful floral offerings.

Mr. and Mrs. Bert McHatton.
Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Jarvis and family.
