    • From Arrowheads To Wheatfields, Avonlea, Hearre & Districts 1983:

      Carl was born in 1904, died in the flu epidemic in 1918. The Avonlea School had been turned into a hospital. Ida, Carl's mother, and two sisters were also there. When his father became ill and was taken to hospital, a neighbour was to look after Reg (aged 4) and Iolene (2), but due to a comminication gap, they stayed alone at home overnight.

      Obituary - Carl Merriam Passes Away

      It is with deepest regret that we have to announce the death of Carl Merriam , age 13. His parents and two little sisters are in hospital and every day the little fellow would hang around for news of their recovery. He was found at home alone on Monday suffering with pneumonia, and was taken at once to the hospital, where he died at 11:00 pm, Wednesday night. The whole community mourns his loss and extends their deepest sympathies to the bereaved parents. The internment took place at Hillcrest Cemetery on Thursday afternoon and was of a private nature. The Rev W. H. Colter conducted the ceremony.
