Baby is Found Dead in Bed by Sick Mother
Sad Bereavement for Mr. and Mrs. Samuel J. Lee in Sudden Death of Infant Son.
Shock of sudden death of Francis Joseph, 18-months-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel J. Lee, of Moffit avenue, makes the bereavement more sad for the parents as Mrs. Lee returned home yesterday from the Kane Summit hospital, where she was a patient for several weeks.The baby was found dead by an older sister after parents had become apprehensive because of the child sleeping longer than usual.When the girl reported the child to be cold, investigation was made and the child found dead.Dr. S. G. Beatty pronounced death due to convulsions.
In the afternoon after the mother's arrival home, a ten-year-old daughter put the baby to bed after giving a cookie to the child.The baby was restless and crying so the little girl rocked her little brother to sleep and tucked him into bed.
Two hours later the baby had not roused from sleep and investigation showed it was cold in death.Mrs. Lee is prostrated with grief.
