UNCLE ABE IKERD, AGE 95, VERY LOW
Bedford Mail: Uncle Abe Ikerd, who was 95 years old last September, is very low at his home east of the city. He has been in a serious condition for several days, and this afternoon he was reported to be much worse. He is suffering from a complication of diseases including grip, heart trouble and partial paralysis of the tongue and throat. Relatives have abandoned all hopes for his recovery.
