Harrold E. QUERFELD 

April 17, 1908
Clinton Register


Harrold Earl QUERFELD, son of Mr. and Mrs. William QUERFELD, was born September 23, 1907, and departed this life at 4 p.m., April 13, 1908, the cause of his death being gastritis.

Only about 7 months was he permitted to gladden the hearts of and home of his parents.  Always a happy and contented child, he gave promise of that fuller development that makes glad the heart of every true parent.  Little Dale, his older brother, too young yet to understand the mystery of death, will miss so much by this early separation.

Funeral services were conducted at 2:30 p.m., Wednesday, by Rev. L. B. Pickerell of DeLand, former pastor of the Christian church, who spoke briefly, but in deep and sympathetic feeling, to the large gathering of friends and relatives upon the hope of the resurrection.

The original poem by Elder Pickerell, too long for publication in this issue, was nevertheless, appreciated by the sorrowing father and mother and beloved friends.  Interment was made in Woodlawn cemetery.
