Cecil Emerson Heisig (1902-1903)

As told in the excerpted article, baby Cecil died at one year of age from the croup while Vida was visiting up north.  The family said the doctor was inebriated and gave the baby too much ether. It was said that Vida became a Christian Scientist afterward, when a Smelker told her about the religion which was said to have healed her grief.
