and Mrs. Waddell sang, "I Think When
I Read That Sweet Story of Old" with
Miss Amy Roce at the organ.
The relationship of little Teggy to
the congregation of the Presbyterian

beautiful one. Since she was a few
months old, the child had bees a regular
attendance at church services, her
mother being contralto soloist in the
cnurcn caorr. out; <%. mrauo ;

with the entire congregation and their

and Minor Dunham.
The body was taken to 'Wheeling on
the 5:17 train accompanied by her parents.
