HEATHERLY, Cecil L., Medford (Oregon) Mail, Friday, 23 May 1902, Central Point Items: It again becomes the sad duty of your correspondent to record the death of one of our darling girls on May 14th. The death angel summoned from the home of Mr. and Mrs. A. O Heatherly their beloved daughter Cecil L. aged 12 years, 45months. She had only been sick three days with that dread disease, diphtheria, when death came to her relief. This is the deepest sorrow into which this family has yet been plunged. All was done that fond and loving parents could to do relieve the little sufferer but to no avail. Never was any child's death more sincerely mourned by an entire community. She was a very winning little girl and to know her was to love her. The flowers contributed by her teachers and schoolmates were a tribute showing the love and respect they had for her. No more for her,will the storm clouds of time be gathered to darken life's fair day. Once more the pearly gates swung back, and another bright soul beholds the light of the beautiful city and is welcomed at the pearly portals.
I would send for their death certificates which should tell you where they are buried.
