SMOTHERED - An inquest was held yesterday on the body of a male child, one
month old, named Marion Johnson McChesney, found dead at 202 Annunciation
street, and a verdict of accidental death was rendered. The parents of the child, it
appears, were passengers on board of the steamer Marion at the time that she
was wrecked on the Double Headed Shot Keys and the infant was prematurely
ushered into this breathing world on that melancholy occasion. The young
immortal received the joint name of the ship and captain and was doing well
apparently until Saturday night, when it was accidentally smothered in bed.
