On the 20th inst., death again entered the home of Mr. W.P. Toler and took his third son, Fenner P. Toler, a young man about 15 years old. He had been convalescent for some time and every body thought he was past danger when the relapse came.
This is four hale, hearty young people who have been snatched into eternity right in the morning of life when their future was so bright and sunny before them. Four bright young plants, as it were, just on the verge of maturity cut down by that merciless reaper Death. How sad! Oh how sad!
But Oh the anguish of those bereaved parents! Who can express their anguish while for the last four months they have waited and watched and prayed and at last have seen their darlings taken away one by one and transplanted in the garden of eternity.
The father himself has been at death's door for some time, thinking, no doubt, that he would be the next victim. He is now convalescent adn it is hoped will soon be out of danger. But he has two small children who have the fever and it is not yet known what the result might be."1 He was buried at High Bridge Cemetery, Caton, Craven County, North Carolina.
