Steder, Infant Daughter (26 Feb 1895 - 20 Mar. 1895)

The infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Stetter died  (Steder), yesterday morning, and it is reported that Mrs. Stetter herself is very low. The family will have the sympathy of the community with hopes that Mrs. Stetter will recover rapidly.

*"Stetter" is an incorrect spelling.  The name should have been spelled Steder.
