Edward Lawrence Cartan, only child of Mr. and Mrs. Rens Cartan of Matawan, died of spinal meningitis on Monday of last week at the home of Mrs. Cartonís parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Bedle of Keyport. The child had not been well for two or three days and it was taken to its grandparentsí home at Keyport, thinking that the change of air might do it good. I was not benefited, however, and it gradually grew weaker until it died.
(Per the Death Notice Edward was aged 19 months.)
