Had Young Man Who Died In Calloway

Floyd C. Cunningham died at his home in Calloway County near Pine Bluff. He was taken ill on Thursday, June 1st at 12 o’clock, of inflammation of the bowels and lived till Sunday night at 12 o’clock. In April he had the measles and then appendicitis. He was operated on in May and has suffered death a thousand times over, but bore his suffering so bravely. He was 17 years and 5 months old and was beloved by all who knew him. He leaves father, mother, and 5 brothers to mourn his untimely death. His grandfathers, N.C. Cooper and S.W. Cunningham, both live in Trigg county near old Trigg Furnace. He was a son of C.O. and Fannie Cunningham. Oh, it was so hard to give him up, but we try to say God’s will be done, and may our summons come soon to join Floyd on the other side of the river of death.
His broken-hearted mother.
