McCLAIN, Joseph Campbell

    Cambria Freeman, 23 Dec 1904, Contributed by Patty Millich

The sad news reached Patton Monday morning that Joseph Campbell McClain, aged 19 years, son of Mr. James A. McClain of Spangler, had died in the Sisters' Hospital at El Paso, Texas, on Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, the cause of his death being consumption. Joseph was well known in Patton having often visited his sister, Mrs. A. H. Lingle and had hosts of friends among the young people. For sometime it was evident he was a victim of that dread disease, consumption, and last August went to New Mexico in hope that the mild climate of that region would be of benefit. Instead however he gradually grew worse so he went to El Paso and entered the Sisters' Hospital where every kind care and attention were bestowed upon him and word of his condition was sent his friends at Spangler. His father started immediately for El Paso and arrived at his bedside a few hours before his spirit took its flight and the broken-hearted father started east with the body. At this writing it has not been determined when or where the interment will take place. He is survived by two sisters and brothers, Mrs. H. S. Lingle of Patton; Miss Nan and Thomas, at home; and James of South Dakota; his mother having preceded him to the grave three years ago. To his mourning friends we extend heartfelt sympathy in the loss of their greatly beloved son and brother.
