Leroy and Sidney Makinson

Leroy and Sidney Makinson
died December 7, 1900, in Dayton, Illinois


Quite a number of relatives and friends viewed the remains of the two youngest sons, Leroy and Sidney, children of Mr. and Mrs. G. L. Makinson, who died last Friday within ten hours of each other. Both were taken sick with the measles on Sunday, and on Thursday pneumonia set in and in a few hours both were dead. The funeral would have undoubtedly been a large one, but it was the earnest wish of the parents that it be private. Both were buried at 11 o’clock on Saturday morning in the same grave at the Dayton cemetery.1
