Bortle, Irvin Guy (? - 15 Aug. 1887)

Bortle - Near Neillsville Aug. 15th, of Cholera infantum, Irvin Guy, infant son of L. E. E. Bortle, aged 9 months and 11 days.

Death may the hands of life unloose

But can’t destroy my love.

Millions of infants souls compose

The family above.

I’ll take these little lambs, says he,

And lay them in my breast.

Protection they shall find in me,

In me be ever blest.
