Nathaniel Martin Meade Obituary

Nathaniel Martin Meade was born near Blackwell, Oklahoma January 17, 1903; died at the residence of his grandmother, Mrs. Nathaniel Martin in Francisco, Ind., April 9, 1903, after an illness of fifteen days of catarrhal pneumonia.

The funeral services were conducted April 10th at the M.E. Church, by Bro. Willis, pastor of the G.B. church. The beautiful white casket, covered by lovely flowers sent in by sympathizing friends, was tenderly borne by four little girls as pall bearers and the interment was in the Odd Fellows cemetery at Princeton, Ind.

Little Martin had only been in Indiana a short time, having left papa and brothers so many hundred miles away, with his mama, to visit grandparents, only to soon close his eyes never to open again in this world, but to join his angel brother and sister gone on before.

The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.
