David Albert
May 1919
David Albert, aged about 80 years died in Macon county hospital Friday. The old man came to the county farm 12 or so months ago. The weight of four score years and the added handicap perhaps of unwise judgment bore heavily upon him. Of his relatives, if any were living, he said nothing. Wednesday, he was removed from the county farm to the hospital, where his death occurred.
