THE WESTERN STAR, 21 September 1889
Obituary of ALVA ORVIN MARVEL
OBITUARY.

Little Alva Orvin Marvel died at 2 o'clock last Sunday, after an illness of eight weeks. He was aged 4 years and 7 months and was the next to the youngest child of Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Marvel of this city. Like a plucked
flower bud, his purpose in life has ended 'ere its mission had fairly begun. The hopes, the joys, the aspirations of infancy and youth are blotted out forever and gone out into everlasting night. These thoughts burden our hearts as we are frequently called upon from time to time to
chronicle the death of infancy or young people just in the bloom of youth or early manhood or womanhood. The funeral services were held by Rev. Woodward at the family residence in the south part of the city at 3 p.m. Monday.
