Wayne Kinney Norris, 1908-1912

The Seymour Democrat – 9 September 1912
  Wayne Kinney Norris, youngest son of Guthrie and Osta Norris, was born Sept. 25, 1908, and departed this life Sept. 3, 1912, age 3 years, 11 months and 21 days.
  On Monday morning he was playing in the yard when he ran to call his papa to eat breakfast with him when a little colt kicked him.  He ran to his manna and told her.  The doctor was called but it was thought to be nothing serious, but that evening he began to get worse and the doctor came again and called council from Centerville, when it was decided that nothing could save his life but an operation.  He was taken to Centerville to the St. Joseph Hospital at 3 a.m., where everything that medical aid and loving hands could do to ease his pain was done, but it seemed as if appendicitis had already formed which was aggravated by the hurt.,
  The doctors did everything that could be done but he passed away at 8:30 Tuesday morning.  The little darling was taken to the residence of Glendora and Pheba Norris Tuesday afternoon.  The funeral was preached by Rev. Bear at the M. E. church at Jerome Wednesday afternoon after which he was laid to rest in the Jerome cemetery.
  A loving father, mother and three brothers and a host of relatives are left to mourn his loss.
