Century Memorial

Dr. Henry B. Sands and Dr. Cornelius R. Agnew occupied the front rank in the medical profession, in which to be distinguished is an evidence of great ability, so high is the standard which it maintains. Their skill, devotion, purity of life, philanthropy and usefulness as citizens were marked and recognized by the whole community.
