Drew, traveling salesman for the St. Louis Steel Range Co., and went with her husband to southern Illinois, but for the past two or three months had been with her parents on the homestead. About three weeks before her death she gave birth to a child that, with the father, survives to mourn, in after years, the mother it never knew.
