STIVERS, d/o A. J.

    Cambria Freeman, 17 Dec 1880, Page 2, Contributed by Lisa Baker

The wife of Mr. A.J. Stivers, residing near Bedford, returned to her house after a few minutes' absence, on last Saturday week, to find that her four-year-old daughter had been burned almost to a crisp. How the shocking accident happened could not be ascertained, as a younger child, not able to talk, was the only witness of the sad affair, but it is believed that a spark or a red-hot coal from the cooking stove set fire to her clothing. The little unfortunate died in a few minutes after her mother's return.
