Covill, Jimmie (1870 - 1872)

Died on Sunday, March 10, 1872, Jimmie, only child of Wilson S. and Belle Covill, aged 18 months.

The Angel of Death has seldom visited us to bring so deep a sorrow, as which Little Jimmie was taken away. The mother's heart was still aching from being bereft of her only brother, whose death was recorded in the last issue of this paper. The father prostrated by severe illness, was denied his hearts desire, to minister to the little sufferer in his last sickness. No parents could have manifested more solicitude than the grandparents of this child, on whom their chastened hopes centered so fondly. But the Great Giver of life does not take away out treasures to leave no recompense of hope. Like cooling waters in a thirsty land were these words of comfort to the bereaved ones on the day when they laid their treasure down to rest.
