As he was passing up Main street, Nov. 8th, he says he met his mother, who was dead.
He says that he spoke to her and she to him, telling him that he would die in three weeks. Upon this he went to his cousin's Mrs. D. M. Gilpatricks
, and told her that he was going to die and wanted her to take care of him. In three weeks from that day he died of typhoid fever.
He was about twenty years of age.
