BURNAP, Robert

Little Robert Burnap, the 7-year-old son of Virgil A. and Linda Fout, died at 7:30 o'clock, June 1, 1913, at his home near Purgittsville. The cause of his death, though under the care of skillful local doctors and eminent physicians of Washington, D. C., could not be ascertained until after the Great Physician took him as his own. An examination by Drs. Wright and Babb revealed the cause to have been the improper work of the gall ducts, and no medical aid could have saved him.  The sudden departure of the little jewel was a crushing blow to his parents and all that were near to him, and the weight of sorrow with which they are burdened, our Heavenly Father and time can only alleviate.  The great love for the child was manifested by the beautiful floral tributes from those who knew him.  Rev. George Burgess, assisted by Rev. Yost conducted the funeral services at 2:30 o'clock, June 2, after which the little body was laid to rest in the home burial ground.
