SEXAUER — On Thursday morning, July 24th, 1884, of summer complaint, Elisabeth Ellen, infant daughter of George SEXAUER, at the age of 8 months and 15 days.
The lovely bud, so young and fair,
Called hence by early doom!
Just came to show how sweet a flower
In paradise would bloom.
FLYNN — On Thursday, July 24, 1884, at 4 P.M., Tommy, only son of Joseph and Mary FLYNN, aged 1 year and 22 days.
Ere sin could blight, or sorrow fade,
Death came with friendly care
The opening bud to heaven conveyed,
And bade it blossom there.
