DEATH FROM MEASLES- PNEUMONIA DEVELOPED AND PROVED FATAL TO JOSEPH MILTON HINKLE TAKEN TO HOSPITAL YESTERDAY
The death at St. Joseph Hospital at six o'clock this morning of Joseph Milton Hinkle, well known Vandalia bridge carpenter. Deceased was 55 years of age. He was first taken ill with the measles, which was very unusual for a man of his years, about three months ago. The illness failed to respond to medical treatment and it was not long until the other complications of typhoid and pneumonia set in. Yesterday afternoon his condition became so grave that it was decided to transfer him to St. Joseph hospital. He was taken there in the Killian and McCloskey ambulance but the change did not have the desired effect and he gradually grew worse until the end came this morning.
Deceased resided with his wife No. 206 Clifton Avenue and had been employed by the Vandalia railroad for a number of years. Beside his wife, deceased is survived by the following children: Mrs. Paul Norzinsky, Mrs. Earl Kenney, Bruce and Carl Hinkle. The latter is a soldier in the US Army stationed at Vancouver Barracks, Washington. He was notified of the death by wire and funeral arrangements will not be made until a reply by him is received. It is possible he will come here to attend the funeral.
