Died. At Nodaway Station, of congestive fever, Mikey, infant son of Michael and Clara Chronister, on Friday, November 7, 1873, aged 10 months and 20 days.
Our dear little Mikey, our sweet little boy Who already had proved our solace and joy, Has ascended to heaven and left us behind. May God in his mercy make us resigned. He has left us alone, in repining and tears, But we know that the angels are now his compeers, And that when our long days of sorrow are o'er, We will meet our dear child on heaven's bright shore.
