Charles Ballard d. June 12, 1902

Charles Ballard died at his home near Waynesville, June 12, 1902, of typhoid fever after a short illness, aged 24 years. Everything that skilled physicians and loving hands could do was all in vain; the Lord had need for him and called him away. His sisters and step-mother were with him and administered to every want until the end came. His companion had proceeded him just three weeks. But we weep not as those that have little faith. While we have lost him we hope our loss is his gain. He is free from all care and trouble and has paid the debt we all must pay. While his body moulders in the tomb the soul is safe in Heaven. where there will be no hour of parting and God shall wipe all tears away.

He leaves two small children and four sisters to mourn his loss. The interment took place at the Laughlin cemetery at 12 o'clock Saturday.
