52 Relatives in 2018 #52 Leland Fetherkile (1921-1922)

Leland Fetherkile

relationship:  1st cousin 2x removed

Uncle Clarence and his wife Zelma divorced 2 months after the death of their son Leland.  Family rumor was that Clarence blamed her for his death.  Reading the death certificate, I can understand why.  Leland evidently drank/ingested kerosene at his maternal grandparents home.

birth:  23 April 1921 in Benton County, Iowa, United States

parents:  Clarence Leland Fetherkile (1900-1980) and Zelma Harrison (1903-1982)

death:  15 August 1922 in Taylor Township, Benton County, Iowa, United States

Lawrence Leo Fetherkile

relationship:  great-Uncle

Grandma always said that he died having an asthma attack.  Death certificate says “angina pectoris”.  When I had a heart attack (female 45 years old), I seriously thought I was having a bad asthma attack.  Maybe my family presents heart issues mimicking asthma.
