Ray Palmer


Cincinnati Enquirer, 9 September 1901, page 3


DIED WITH LOCKJAW-Ray, the ten year old son of Joseph Palmer, of Twelfth and Patterson streets, died last night in a horrible agony, the result of lockjaw. The lad some two weeks ago stepped upon a rusty hoe blade, lacerating the foot badly.  Dr. Helmbold attended, dressed the wound and the boy, improving slightly, went out and jostled the wound against a rusty nail.

Dr. Helmbold was again called, did everything within his power, but lockjaw set in yesterday and death ensued.
