Little Vernon, aged 5 years, died last Sunday at the home of his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Bottom, near Jenkinsville. He was the only child of Mrs. Ida Riley, widow of the late Mr. Sydney Riley. The bright little fellow was ill but a short while with pneumonia. The funeral service was held at Bruner’s Chapel, conducted by Rev. Willis, and the interment was in the cemetery there. The bereaved mother has the sympathy of many friends.
