James Dysart Mitchell
Born April 27 1897, Died Jan 6. 1900.
James Dysart MITCHELL, the little 3 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Robt. G. MITCHELL was taken suddenly ill Wednesday evening of last week with diphtheria, and although all that medical aid and kind loving hands could do was done for the little fellow, nothing could assuage his suffering, and on Saturday morning at one o’clock he succumbed to the dread disease. James Dysart was a bright, playful boy and he will be sadly missed by his parents and little brother and sister, Robert and Gwynette. Yet with the hope of the Christian they await the resurrection morn when they shall be reunited in the Father’s house. A Scripture lesson and prayer was read at the grave by Rev. R. T. CALDWELL.
