“Jesse Cosby BOGGS Dead.
“Jesse Cosby, the fifteen-months-old son of Mr. Jesse G. BOGGS, died at the residence of the father, No. 1011 Twentieth street, East Highlands, at 2:55 o’clock yesterday afternoon. The little one has been suffering from teething and cholera infantum since April 7th. The funeral of the little one will take place from the house at 2 o’clock this afternoon, conducted by Rev. H. C. HURLEY, of the Rose Hill Baptist church, the interment being in Clapp’s factory cemetery.”
[Columbus (GA) Daily Enquirer-Sun, Tuesday, 01 OCT 1901.]
Seeking information on the background and family connections of Jesse G. BOGGS. Should we surmise from this notice that his wife was not still living at the time? If not, is she also buried at Clapp’s Factory? Based on the son’s age, she probably would have died between July 1900 and September 1901. Daniel B. OLDS reports, in his list of death notices from Columbus papers, the following: Mrs. J. BOGGS, pub. 12 FEB 1901 in the Enquirer-Sun newspaper. However, I don’t have the text for this piece.
Thanks - John in TX
