The Western Star, December 12, 1891.

Death of Miss Belle Sides.

Died, of quick consumption, on Wednesday, December 9, 1891, at the home of her cousin, Mrs. J. D. Beck, of Nescatunga, Miss Belle Sides, aged 26 years. Miss Belle Sides was a resident of Buckhorn, Illinois, and had only been in this county 21 days, and her mission here was to take care of her sister, Miss Ida Sides, who is also ill with the same dreaded disease. But death claimed her at 2:30 o'clock last Wednesday morning.

D. M. Sides, the father of the deceased young lady arrived Wednesday from Buckhorn, and started home with the remains of his daughter Friday morning, encased in a beautiful white casket. He will arrive at home at 9 o'clock tonight.
