Ferguson, Gladys (*28 Sept. 1904 - February 19,1905)*Birth date done on date calculator, so can be off.
Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Ferguson mourn the loss of their little daughter whose death occurred Sunday, Feb 19th, aged 4 months and 22 days.
For some time the little one has suffered an affection of the heart but until Sunday her condition was not considered dangerous.
Sunday afternoon alarming symptoms appeared and Dr. Clark was called in but the little one was then beyond medical aid. Everything was done that kind and loving hands could do but at 6:30 p. m. it passed into the arms of its maker.
At the time of the death of his little daughter Mr. Ferguson was on his way to Moscow, Idaho and was reached by telegram in western Montana. He took the first train back arriving here at 2 a. m. Wednesday.
The funeral was held Thursday at twelve o’clock from the residence of J. A. Pettet. The bereaved couple and other relatives accompanied the remains to Stevens Point where they were interred by the side of other members of the family.
Little Gladys was their only child and her absence will be deeply felt by the bereaved parents and the sincere sympathy of the community is extended to them in first sad afflicition.
