Mildred Daugherty



Mildred, the two year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Israel Daugherty of Canyon Creek, was drowned in Ten Sleep Creek last Thursday.  The family was visiting at the home of Mrs. Daugherty’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Rice, and the little one left the home looking for her mother, who had gone to a neighbor’s on an errand.  Within ten minutes after she disappeared she was missed and a search started, the body being found a short distance from the house.  Funeral services were held in Ten Sleep Saturday afternoon, being conducted by Rev. Calme of Hyattville.  A large concourse of sorrowing neighbors and friends followed the remains to their last resting place.  The sympathy of the entire community will be extended to the bereaved parents.-Basin Republican
