Died, July 9th, 1897, little Earl V. Melville, infant son of Oliver and Ollie Melville. Little Earl was born on the 25th of May, A. D. 1897, and lived one month, three weeks and three days. A child is dead, an angel is bond. His little body was laid to rest in the Pleasant Ridge cemetery on July 19th, in the presence of a multitude of friends and neighbors, funeral services being conducted by S. N. Jones. "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
Note from Submitter:
I do know from the BLM General Land Office records that Oliver's father Charles Melville owned the plot of land at T19N, R4W, Section 26, NW 1/4. The land is one mile South of the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery - presently known as the Marshall, OK IOOF South cemetery.
