Blanche Adell Wright

The Western Star, June 6, 1891.

Every mother and father will sympathize with Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Wright of this city, over whose home the dark winged messenger of death brought desolation yesterday. Their youngest child, a little girl about a week ago, dislocating its leg. Blood poisoning set in a few days ago and the little sufferer died at 2:30 o'clock Friday morning.

How relentless is death! It casts its shadows and leaves its gloom over the happiest homes, and steals away the little jewel, whose prattles made music around the hearth stones. With black, somber wings he hovers o'er the homes, and with icy touch closes the eyes, places the eternal seal of silence upon the little lips, and takes from the loving arms of fond parents the little one who was only loaned from heaven for a time.

June 13, 1891 - Blanche Adell, infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Wright of this city, aged 10 months, whose sad death, was mentioned in last week's paper, was buried near Milan, in Sumner county, last Saturday evening. Little Blanche was a beautiful babe, lovable and loved, and the sorrowing parents will ever retain the vision of the glowing and sweet face.
