Kaskinen, John Sat 28 Aug 1926 Fort William Daily Times Journal
The death occurred on Friday morning in St. Joseph's Hospital of John, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. George Kerkinen, Dawson Road, aged around eight months. The baby had been ill for some time with what was considered a minor ailment, one which is common in infancy. Last week the parents took the child to the city to consult a doctor who ordered him to hospital at once for treatment to which the little fellow responded quite nicely and there were hopes held out for his recovery. However the past day or two a serious change was noted in his condition and the mother, Mrs. Kaskinen had left early Friday morning with the Aho's to visit the baby in hospital and therefore was unaware of her son's death till she arrived in the city. Surviving in addition to the parents are two sisters, Letitia and Sylvia and one brother David. Much sympathy goes forth to the family who are by this death bereaved for the second time within a few months. Mrs. Kaskinen's father, the late David Knox, being laid to rest in May in Sunshine Cemetery where, it is presumed, the baby will be interred.
