“Victim of Epidemic Becomes Mother While Quarantined”

Waynesboro – At the direction of County Health Officer Kinter, two homes in Waynesboro have been placarded for smallpox since Saturday. These are the home of F. Lane McFerren, North Church Street, and Samuel McFerren on Cemetery Hill, back of the Burns Hill Cemetery.

Both are mild cases and the children, a young daughter in each family, have been under observation as contacts since the first discovery of smallpox cases in Beck’s row.

In addition to the above eight new cases of smallpox have developed in “The Row” in the past forty-eight hours. Three new cases are reported in the Baker family. The father of the Unger boys, who are just recovering from the disease, has a well-developed case. Francis Kenney, Pearl and Ellen Baer, and Ann Walters are others who are ill.

A baby girl has been born to Mrs. Samuel Baker, Beck’s Row. Mrs. Baker is a victim of smallpox, but her condition, as well as that of the infant, is very encouraging to the physician who has charge of the case.
