Obituary Date: 3/19/1904

Information in this record:
Dirickson, Edwin F.
PROMINENT AND Popular Young Business Man of Berlin Dies in Baltimore. Mr. Edwin F. Dirickson, son of Dr. E. J. Dirickson and Hattie L. Dirickson, of Berlin, died Tuesday morning about four o'clock at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, of complications following an attack of appendicitis with necessitated two operations. When the first symptoms of the disease developed, Mr. Dirickson was taken to Baltimore by his father for treatment. An operation was performed for appendicitis, and for a while his condition was reported to be most favorable. In a few days a change for the worse took place, and a second operation was deemed necessary. Blood poison developed, and all efforts of his physicians to save his life were futile. Mr. Dirickson was 26 years of age, and was one of the most promising young men in the county. The deceased was identified with his twin brother, Levin in the mercantile business in Berlin, and in the canning industry at Berlin and Newark, besides owning and operating a shirt factory in Berlin. The twin brothers, Ned and Lev have been general favorites with all their friends and acquaintances, and for several years no social function in Berlin or Snow Hill has seemed a success without their presence. Mr. Dirickson was an indefatigable worker, and in connection with his other business maters, managed a large farm at Cropper's Neck. His body was carried to Berlin Tuesday night, and interred in the cemetery of St. Paul's Church Wednesday afternoon at three o'clock. (A long obit, mainly religious, containing no more important information). 19 March 1904 DM
