Infant Mary PAGE burns to death (1908)

from The Republican (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, January 23, 1908 - page 1, column 5

Mary, daughter of Wallace and Annie Page, was fatally burned last week. While Mrs. Page was busy at her house work Wednesday the child was playing around the house with a little broom. It is thought her clothes caught fire from the stove and when her mother reached her upon hearing her cries, she was too late to be of help. The little one was almost two years old. She was born near North Salem, Jan. 20, 1906. After funeral services at the home Friday morning the little body was laid away, the services being conducted by E.C. Bybee and J. Rice. The bereaved family have the sympathy of all while they realize that although she is missed in the home she is a bright light on the other shore.
