Mortality for 3 June 1897 in Baltimore, Maryland

My last post illustrated how some newspapers would also post a listing of deaths that had occurred over several days. This one provides that information again for a different day.

The first step is to decipher the Fraktur print and then translate it from German to English as shown below. I enlarged the image, so that I could determine each letter and then used Google Translate to translate it from German to English.

“Todesfälle,” Der Deutsche Correspondent (Baltimore, Maryland), 3 June 1897, p. 2, col. 3; microfilm NP 2267, Central Library, Enoch Pratt Free Library, Baltimore, Maryland.
