Mt. Vernon Signal, Mt. Vernon, Kentucky
July 8, 1898

The infant of Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Levisay died last Friday and was buried in the Presbyterian cemetery Saturday.  The coffin was carried to grave by little girls.


We wish to return our many thanks to our friends for their kindness shown us in the sickness and death of our baby.  And especially to the little girls who bore its remains to its last resting place, also to Rev. Carmical for the beautiful little talk which he delivered at the church in his pleasant way.

R. H. Livesay,
Cassie Livesay.
