Hello George,
I have a old newspaper article' MERCIFUL DEATH AT LAST',
dated Sept., 1902 from the Spartanburg Journal.{ S.C.}
It reads briefly;
Asheville, Sept.4.- WILLIE HARRIS, the young victim of the mad dog bite, did not die until tonight....his father, MR. HARRIS, had taken his son to the Pasteur Institute in New York by train. He carried the head of the dog to the institute...they inoculated a rabbit with the poison taken from the dog's head. The rabbit died 14 days later.... doctors gave his son med's, and on the way home near Salisbury, the little fellow was seized with terrible convulsions on the train.He became momentarily quiet and looked into the face of his father asked for a kiss...the N.Y. doctors had warned him against the fatal danger with contact of the saliva...the father dared not do. The remains will be taken to Marshall for interment in the family burying ground near the home of Senator Pritchard, the boy's uncle.
--- This is not my family, hope this may be of interest to you and of some help.
