DIED: Jeddie B. COTTON, 1867 - 1891

DIED--COTTON--At Kalama, Washington, March 17th, of typho-malarial fever suddenly 
complicated by congestive chills, Jeddie D. COTTON, in the 24th year of his age. 

Jeddie D. COTTON was born at Roche-a Cri; in this county, on the 11th of June, 1867. 
He was the third son of the late Emulous P. COTTON, who was a delegate from Waukesha 
county to the second constitutional convention of this State, and who died at 
Roche-a-Cri a few years ago.

Jeddie went to Washington in July, 1889, and there found employment as a fireman on
the Northern Pacific Railroad, and remained in its service until his last sickness.

His remains were brought to Roche-a-Cri for burial beside those of his parents. The 
funeral was held at Roche-a-Cri on Tuesday, Rev. P. R. Staples officiating, and was 
attended by quite a number, besides immediate friends from this place and other parts
of the county.

Two brothers, Lee COTTON, of New Chester, and Rolla COTTON, of this place, and two 
sisters, Mrs. Hattie BANKER and Miss Etta COTTON, of Friendship, survive the deceased.
