LEO KETCHUM - Obituary

Ketchum, Leo

The East Liverpool Tribune


     After being ill for only a short time, Leo, the six-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ketchum, of Virginia avenue, died yesterday afternoon (Nov. 2, 1906) about 2:30 o'clock of croup, death resulting from strangulation.  The youngster was afflicted with the croup Thursday evening and a doctor was summoned.  He continued to grow worse, however, and nothing could be done for his relief.  Although he had suffered slightly from lumps on his neck for several weeks past he was not considered to be in a dangerous condition until croup developed.

     The boy had just started to school this fall and was a bright and interesting lad.  The parents are grief stricken over his sudden death.  Besides the parents two brothers and one sister survive, Raymond and Wilbur and Helen.  The father is employed as a motorman on the street car line.  Funeral arrangements will be announced later.
