      Three Deaths in One Family

      Three members of one family passed away in one week at the home of Elijah Barnett on the head of Dry Fork. On Wednesday of last week his sister, Miss Barnett, died aged 89, and on Saturday his wife. Shown Barnett, passed away aped 76, and on Monday of this week Mr. Barnett joined the loved ones, he being in his 84th year. All the deaths were due to the infirmities of old age.

      The Barnetts were raised on Dry Fork, in West Virginia, near where Yukon is now located. Several years ago they Bold their property to the Yukon Coal Company and moved to the Barker farm in this county where they have since resided, and all three were buried in the family burying ground on their present home place.

      THREE DEATHS IN ONE FAMILY

      Last Monday Elijah Barnett died at his home oh Dry Fork, aged 83 years. The Saturday before, his wife, 76 years old, was buried. A few days before, in the same week, his maiden sister, Sallie, who lived with him, died, aged 89 years. Mr. Barnett and his wife died of pneumonia, and the sister may also have had the same disease. The deaths of these aged people occurring in the same house within a weeks time, is a remarkable coincidence. We recall no similar occurrence. Mr. Barnett came to this county from West Virginia about a year ago. A few days ago he was in town, and called at this office, appearing in good health and reasonably active for a man of his years.
