From St. Charles (Ill.) Chronicle, 20 May 1898:
Word has been received from our boys in Chickamauga that Oscar Hegland has the measles and is confined to the hospital. The weather is terrible hot and the boys think they will be kept there all summer, moving to Cuba in the winter.
I am not related to nor researching this family and have no further information.
