FOUR SOLDIER PALL BEARERS AT RELATIVE'S FUNERAL

Mrs. Jane Laughlin, who had made her home near Doe Run all her life, died of erysipelas, Thursday, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Andrew Cook, of East St. Louis, She was 87 years oild, and had been visiting Mrs. Cook for a period of six months previously to her death. Her husband died a little more tha a year ago at the advanced age of 94 years.

The remains were taken to Farmington, Saturday, to the Catholic church. Internment was made in Calvary cemetery.

An incident in connection with this funeral, of more that unusual interest, was the fact that the pall bearers were four relatives of the deceased woman, all of whom had recently returned for overseas service, none of them having been wounded. Two of them were grandsons of hers. Harry Laughlin and Willian Cook. The other two were nephews, Mike Laughlin and John Summers.

Mrs. Laughlin was an aunt of Mrs. J.J. Bradley of Rivermines. Those from the Lead Belt attending the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. J.J. Bradley and their daughter, Miss Gertrude, and Mrs. J.T. Rice of Flat River, Mr. and Mrs. T.E. Ruffing of Desloge, and Mrs. C.P. Wilkson of Bonne Terre.

End of article.

Mrs. C. P. Wilkson is my grandmother. She is Mary (Mayme) Gertrude Bradley. I have a photo of Mrs. Loughlin's husband Michael's gravestone. "Michael Loughlin, Apr 15, 1825, Dec 14, 1917."
