Emma Brandenstein
Jasper Courier
Friday July 3, 1874

DIED: On the 23rd Ult, in Huntingburg, Emma Bandenstein, age about two years.
She was attacked and stricken down by that dreadful disease od the brain.
Oh, how sad it is for one so young to and tender to be taken away! As we gazed upon her palid face, thoughts unbidden came rusing to our minds, recalling when a few short days, when we had seen her in the full enjoyment of health. And when life's young current had painted upon her little cheek the healthful glow, too soon alas to be gone!
It was our pleasure to know her, and our privilege to see her often during the last of her sickness, though witnessing intense suffering until death came to her relief.
