PYLES, Grace

    Cambria Freeman, 13 Apr 1900, Page 3, Contributed by Lisa Baker


A sad accident befell Grace, the little 7-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Sylvester Pyles, of Cromwell township, Huntingdon county, on Tuesday last. The child had gone to the steam sawmill of Morrison and Lanthers on an errand, and on leaving a live spark from the stack fell on her clothing. When she discovered her clothes afire she started to run. Her cries attracted the attention of the millmen, but before they could reach her side the flames had totally enveloped her. She lingered in agony for some thirty minutes, when death came to her relief.
