County Affairs

The board of commissioners adjourned last week, after transacting more the usual amount of business. The first three days were spent in allowing bills, as follows:

J. O. Hubbart: coffin for pauper - $4
M. J. Ruddy: coffin for pauper - $14.70
A. L. Kellogg: digging grave for pauper -$2
M. L. Lemont: coffin for pauper - $5.55

The Hutchinson News 7/22/1880

Note: more than likely these paupers are buried in unmarked, possibly unrecorded graves at Eastside Cemetery. Records for the original potter's field are few and poor.
