Chest Springs Child's Death
Wesley Worth McDonald, infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Ford McDonald of Chest Springs, writes a correspondent of the Johnstown TRIBUNE, "died at the home of the parents Wednesday morning of last week, aged one year, one month and six days. His death was due to bronchitis, following an illness from teething. As mentioned, the child's parents survive as do also its paternal and maternal grandparents - Mr. and Mrs. Perry McDonald of Yeagertown, O., and Mr. and Mrs. Leck Wills of Chest Springs. Funeral services were conducted at the home of the parents by the Rev. Whitman of Patton who preached an impressive sermon and interment was made in the M. E. Cemetery at Chest Springs. There were some handsome floral offerings, including a bouquet from Dr. Harry Somerville and a wreath from Mrs. Alice Wharton. The pallbearers were Masters Francis Kearney, Harry Wharton, Clair Little and Lemon Wills. The afflicted parents have the sympathy of the whole community in the death of their only child."
