Found on the microfilm for Mason County Newspaper dated Saturday, 8-27-1887:
In one column they make reference to Anna:
"Misses Anna and Emma Gatliff, who had been in Arizona for several months returned home last week. Miss Anna was quite sick of fever at the time, but was not thought to have been so dangerously ill until a short time before her death."
Then in another column:
"Miss Anna Gatliff, after an illness of only a couple weeks, died at the residence of her parents last Wednesday morning. The remains were laid away in the Crosby cemetary on Thursday, followed by a large number of friends. How sad is the death of the young, but nature's debt must be paid by all, and here just as womanhood dawns a soul is required to quit the busy world. The family have the sincere sympathy of their friends in their trouble."
In a newspaper the next week, it made reference to her father being ill for several days the previous week. Maybe he contracted the same illness while treating her? Anyway, it appears he recovered.
Hope this helps.
