State Herald, 3 Jul 1908, Holyoke, Colorado


Howard, little son of Ed and Ellen Butterfield was born in Phillips County, Colorado, April 9, 1908, and died June 27, 1908 at the age of 3 years 2 months and 18 days. Little Howard had an attack of diabetes and after an illness of 3 months died. Everything in medical aid and careful nursing was all in vain. God saw fit to take the precious jewel to Himself to dwell with the angels. He was a lovely child and was the joy of the home.


The funeral was held at the Pleasant Valley church June 28, Rev. Harmon officiating and the body was laid to rest in the Pleasant Valley cemetery. The family has the sympathy of all in their sorrow.
