Last Wednesday morning, November 15, 1916, the death angel hovered over the home of Mr. and Mrs. John Vincent of this city and claimed Victoria, their little 14 year old daughter.
Victoria had been dangerously ill for some time with typhoid and for some time, little or no hopes for her recovery had been expressed by those who knew best of her condition.
Victoria was born August 15, 1903 and died November 15, 1916 making her thirteen years and four months old at the time of her untimely demise.
The remains were taken to the Rankin Cemetery for interment Wednesday afternoon. Rev. Gilliam, pastor of the Methodist Church at this place conducted the funeral services.
