FERREBEE, Mrs. Annie Tasker and infant

AN AFFLICTED HOME
Last December Mr. and Mrs. Elery Ferrebee and four little children were taken with typhoid fever at their home, 55 E Street, Keyser. After about six weeks illness, Mrs. Ferrebee and infant child died last Saturday, February 4, and were buried at the old family burying ground, near Antioch last Monday. Mrs. Ferrebee before her marriage, was Miss Annie Tasker, and she was in her 26th year of age when she died. The father and four children are slowly improving from the fever, but the children now have chicken pox. The family moved to Keyser last fall and Mr. Ferrebee was employed in the B&O Shops. Their afflictions have been sore indeed, but their neighbors have been extremely kind.
Mr. Ferrebee desires to extend his sincere thanks and assurance of his very highest appreciation for the innumerable acts of kindness and expressions of sympathy that have been extended, by comparative strangers, in these their times of sore distress.
