Bio: Lindsay, Daughter of A. D. critical (1878)

Contact: Vickie

----Source: The Clark Republican and Press Date: 4-12-1878

The little five-year-old daughter of A. D. Lindsay is lying in a very critical condition in consequence of the lodgment of a bean in one of her bronchial tubes. While playing with some common beans, Tuesday evening, she swallowed one, and was soon taken with violent coughing and choking, which has continually worsen up to this day, Friday forenoon. All the resident physicians, together with Dr. (unreadable) of Black River Falls, have been consulted, and Dr. Gage, of Sparta, has been summoned, but has not yet arrived. A surgical operation has been thought of, but has not been decided upon until the arrival of Dr. Gage. The chances, nearly as we can learn, are many against the little sufferer, as her strength is gradually failing.
