Journal: Jeanette Sperry

1897 (Monday) – I left Burton’s and as I was passing the Bowles’ home Mrs. Bowles called to me and told me that Grandpa Webb (David Webb) was dead. Had been found dead in bed. I went down to the schoolhouse then up to Grandpa’s. I called over to Aunt Emma Hague’s (Emma Elizabeth Webb), went down to the post office and then walked out home.
