Harry Ammerman, the youngest son of Elbert and Bertie Ammerman, was born near Alamo, December 16, 1893, and died May 13, 1896, at his home in Kingman, aged 2 years, 4 months and 27 days. Since early last fall he has been troubled with his back, caused by falling from a door step. Although his death came as a shock to his relatives and friends here, yet they feel that they would not have him suffer as she did. The home seems empty without him, yet we hope to meet him in a better and brighter home.

Harry E. Ammerman, the two year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Elbert Ammerman, of Kingman, died Thursday of last week after an illness of several weeks with congestion of the brain.

Funeral services were conducted Friday morning at 6 o’clock after which the mourning friends took up their sad march to Alamo where the remains were laid to rest in the Alamo cemetery. Although but two years and five months of age, Harry’s life was one of affliction ever since he could walk, occasioned by a severe fall which injured the spine. The pain seemed to be intense all the time, resulting in the above mentioned illness but it was wonderful how the little fellow bore up under such a load of afflictions until his death relieved him of his terrible pain. God in his infinite mercy permitted Harry’s life to bud here on earth only soon to bloom in heaven where there is no suffering. What a comfort it ought to be to the parents whose heads are bowed with their first great sorrow to know that when they are done with life, little Harry awaits them in heaven.
