LITTLE GIRL DIED
FROM SEVERE BURNS

Clothing Caught Fire From
Matches During Absence of
Her Mother


Grace Hendershot, seven years old, daughter of Mr. And Mrs. Peter Hendershot, who reside near Whitehouse Station, died Monday afternoon in Somerset Hospital, Somerville, from burns sustained while playing with matches in the house. While her mother was working in the garden she ignited some matches. Her clothing caught fire and she ran screaming upstairs and jumped on a bed. Her mother heard her and rushed to her aid, but the clothing was burned from her body. Mrs. Hendershot succeeded in putting out the flames and prevented the bed clothes from catching fire. Dr. Clark gave first aid and the child was rushed to the hospital, where she died an hour after her arrival. Funeral services were held this afternoon at the house, with internment at Lebanon.
