Note 1

Maxwell, Hugh Erin- Died, August 5th, Hugh Erin Maxwell, infant son of John and Dazie Maxwell, age 18 months. This dear little one entered upon its short but eventful life with a constitution remarkably promising. Healthy, brilliant and beautiful, he commanded the attention and admiration of all who knew him. But Alas! fatal disease found in him even its mark. Through months of the cold winter he lay a very sick but patient child. From this he partially recovered when he was suddenly attacked with the summer sickness which has proved so fatal to so many of our dear little ones, and his pure young life soon went down.

P. Carnahan, Pastor. Benton County Democrat 8/17/1893

Note that Census 1900, Lane county Oregon includes HE Maxwell born Feb 1892 in Arkansas. age 8. Daisie listed as mother of 3 children and only 2 living which are shown also Irene age 5 and Paul 10 months. Apparently they include Hugh Erin in census even tho he died Aug 5, 1893 per obit.
