Gates, Beatrice (? - 1883)
Last Wednesday evening, Death, that hath all seasons for his own, entered the household of J. J. Gates and bereft it of its youngest member, Beatrice, aged one year and five months. She had been ailing for two or three days but nothing serious was discovered in the symptoms by parents and physician until Tuesday, when the physicians decided there were symptoms of a membranous affection of the throat, and from that time the disease rapidly increased its hold and baffled all exertions to check it. Little Beatrice was a remarkably winsome child, at once gaining the affections of all around her, and many sincerely mourn and feel the loss of her sweet present. Nay of the sympathies, so freely given the afflicted parents by relatives and friends, cheer a little the lovely days which must follow the resigning of their keeping *Rest cut off.**
