Susan Hinchcliffe (1882-1902)


Miss Susan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Hinchcliffe of the West Side, died at Lackawanna Hospital yesterday morning after undergoing an operation. Deceased was 20 years of age and had been employed in Scranton for the past three months.

She was not feeling well and did not think it was necessary to consult a doctor. Her uncle called to see her on Friday evening and noting her changed appearance he at once called in a doctor who pronounced it a case of acute peritonitis and ordered her removed to the hospital. She did not recover consciousness. Her mother and uncle were with her when she died.

She was a pretty girl and possessed a winsome disposition. Her parents are much distressed on account of the circumstances and the suddenness of her death. The funeral will take place to-morrow afternoon. Services will be conducted at the house at 2 o’clock by Rev. James Moore. Interment will be in Hamtown Cemetery.
