Melvin Marginson

Died, at his home in Hebron on the evening of the 7th inst., Melvin Marginson, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Marginson, aged 19 years. About two weeks ago he had his arm crushed in a corn husking machine which caused it to be amputated just above the elbow. In about a week later it was amputated again and his death followed in a few days after. The family have the sympathy of the whole community in this their great bereavement. In life he was a good boy to his parents and was a great help to his father. His funeral took place from the M. E. Church, Rev. Sites officiating, assisted by Rev. Finley. The church was crowded and all could not get in the church. Forty-two teams followed him to his last resting place in the Hebron cemetery.
