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
