Facts Of The Death of Miss Virgie Wood Last January Marloe.
- Jan 26, 1906 - Dear Review: The writer has just
returned from Alma, I.T. where we went to attend the funeral of Miss Virgia Maddox Wood, daughter of D.S. Wood and wife, born January 7, 1887, burned January 22, 1906, about 9 a.m. died at 3:40 p.m. the same day.
The history of her death as learned that reached here after being burned is as follows. She was boarding at Mr Ed Newton's near the Ingram Lane school house, four and a half miles north east of Cornish?, I.T. where she had been employed to teach school. On the night of the 21St some snow fell on the neighborhood and Monday morning Miss Virgia went to the school house to start a fire and there were three cans setting together, two with oil, one with gasoline, left their by the writer when he quit mission work in Septembere. The gas one had been used to about one and one half gallons in the can, hurrying to build the fire, she by mistake got hold of the gasoline, poured on some small bundle and when she lit a match and touched it to that in the stove it exploded and ignited the large can, causing it to explode ner her feet, saturating her clothing with oil and fire. Shad had some trouble opening the door hence her clothing all burned completely off of her except her shoes a part of one sleeve and a collar when she fell out in the yard. By this time she was reached by Miss Ingram, one of her pupils and Mr Orr, who lived near by, seeing that her clothes were burned off, hse hastily threw his coat over her. By this time his brother arrived with a built which they quickly wrapped around her.
Mr Orr then held up her head until she was moved to a house near by and the doctor summoned. (Article torn at
