Herrick, Hyland, Age 16, son of Frank Herrick
Hyland Herrick, the sixteen-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Herrick, died at their home on East street Sunday morning April 2, of typhoid fever, after an illness of several weeks. The case is a peculiarly sad one. Mr. and Mrs. Herrick removed from West brook to Walton last fall to give their son, who was an only child, an opportunity to attend the Walton High School. He was an unusually bright boy and made rapid progress until in February he was stricken with pneumonia. He was very ill but made a rapid recovery when he was taken with typhoid fever. The funeral was held from the M. E. church Tuesday.
