Death of Miss Herbert in 1882, NC


October 5, 1882 (The Commonwealth, a newspaper of Scotland Neck, NC, 3rd page, 3rd and 4th columns)


Died, about the same time, of typhoid fever, in Battleboro, Miss Herbert.

She was taken sick only a few days after returning from a visit here.

Young and beautiful, she attracted the young people, and, then on the streets she was the cynosure of admiring eyes.

In the bloom of youth and spring time of womanhood, without scarcely any premonitions, the same unrelenting foe marked her for its own.

It is truly sad to think that two young lives of whom we know should have been cut off thus.
