A copy of the following unidentified newspaper article was found in a scrapbook owned by Town Historian Richard Schmal:
With sadness we record the death of Gracie M. Hayden, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Hayden of West Creek, Ind. She was born in Lake County, Indiana, Jan. 25th, 1881, and died May 19th, 1890. She was taken ill the next day after her brother's death and suffered a great deal, till death came to her relief. Gracie was the youngest child and a vacancy has been made that cannot be filled and the parents, brothers and sisters have the sympathy of all in the loss of their darling. She was of a joyful disposition, and a great favorite among her schoolmates and for this reason she will be greatly missed by her young friends.
