FREDLOCK, Mrs. Margaret Little

The people of this community were shocked when they heard of the sudden death of Mrs. Fred Fredlock, which occurred at Portsmouth, Ohio on May 2, 1903. Her husband who is the bookkeeper for the E.J. Fredlock Manufacturing Co. of this place, left Sunday night to attend the funeral. We will take the following from the Portsmouth Times: “In a spell of extreme despondency, Mrs. Margaret Fredlock committed suicide this morning under tragic circumstances. She viewed the circus parade from Little & Wilson’s office and as the rear of it passed, she apparently fell in a fainting spell. Efforts were made by those about to revive her and a physician was hurriedly called. When he arrived he found that the woman was dying from a dose of carbolic acid. She was taken to the home of H.T. Wilson and there the end came. Mrs. Fredlock was the daughter of Captain James Little and was a stenographer in the office of Little & Wilson. She leaves one child, a boy of 8. Mrs. Fredlock for many months has been afflicted with cancer and had undergone more than one operation for its cure. Nothing could stay its progress. The strain of this dreadful specter of death was always  dogging her more than she could bear and under it her reason gave way temporarily and then came the fatal act.
