Leon Reporter, Leon, Iowa Thursday, December 29, l898
The little son of MR. and MRS. R.K. AKERS, which was born last week, only tarried in this dreary world a few days, his little spirit taking a Heavenly flight Saturday. The little body was tenderly laid to rest Sunday afternoon. The sorrowing parents have the deepest sympathy of many friends in their bereavement.
