Ida M. Baker
Ida M. Baker daughter of Frederick after suffering from Thyphoid fever for more than 6 weeks died 1 week ago sabbath morning March 14, 1875. She was an affectionate and beloved child and will be much missed by the family. The funeral was attended from Mr Baker's residence on Monday March 15, 1875 afternoon and notwithstanding the fearful storm was well attended. The Rev. D B. Byers officiated, we also learn that Mrs Baker is seriously ill from the same fever and for the past 4 months there has been one of the family down with the dreadful disease. We are sure this afflicted family have the sympathies of the community in general.
