Gabriel, Hedwig (1909 - 25 JUN 1917)
Hedwig, eight-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Anton Gabriel of the town of Hull, Marathon, Co., stepped on a rusty nail Saturday, which resulted in blood poisoning. The child's foot was treated with the usual home remedies at the time of the accident, but did not give the desired effect. She was brought to own (Colby, Wis.) Sunday to have Dr. Schemmer treat the injured member, but the doctor was necessarily absent from the city, so she was taken home again. On Monday afternoon the doctor was called to the home, but by this time the little girl was beyond medical aid and she died shortly after his arrival.
The funeral was held from St. Mary's Church in this city yesterday morning, burial taking place in Colby St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery.
The bereaved parents have the sympathy of the entire community.
