Henrietta Hinson
Camden Chronicle
A particularly sad death occurred in the home of Mr W. M. Hinson on last Wednesday morning. Henrietta, his little daughter, three years old, was eating piaders last Monday afternoon when she sucked one on the hulls down her windpipe. Every effort was made to remove it but without avail, and the little sufferer died at the time stated above. To add to the anguish Mr Hinson was away from home and did not return before his little daughter 
died. Oh, the anguish of that fond parent's heart who left his little child apparently in no danger, to return to find it cold in death!To the grief stricken father and mother we tender our deepest sympathies and may they find consolation in the fact that though their little one cannot return to them, they can go to her. The funeral took place at 3 o'clock on Thursday afternoon.
