Birth: unknown
Death: Oct. 31, 1892

Mrs. Granger Burned to Death-and several other persons badly injured and burned-Last Monday morning in the early twilight, just as No. 2, came in from the west, the engineer thereon discovered that the eating house was on fire and immediately gave the alarm, that attracted the attention of the fire department, who were soon upon the scene with department materials to fight it. The engineer of the city water works was up town attending to some of his duties at the time the alarm was given. He hastened to his post and sounded the alarm, which resulted in bringing out many to the fire. The cause that led to the fire, was the explosion of a coffee urn, and in an attempting to get it out doors, the flames were spread about the lower rooms, and before the guests could be awakened, the fire was under full headway. Mr. and Mrs. F.S. Granger, and three children had apartments upstairs in the southeast corner of the building. Mr. Granger had retired soon after midnight, having come in on the Burlington No. 3. His wife, was the first to give him the alarms, both in their night attire hastened to arouse their children who occupied rooms opposite. In this they succeeded but the daughter was quite badly burned about the face and hands. Mr. Granger after seeing his children safe, discovered that his wife was missing, and in his efforts to reach the room where he had last seen his companion, he was terribly burned about the head, neck and lower limbs. Mrs. Granger’s charred remains were found after the flames were extinguished and were taken to Pade’s undertaking for burial and on Tuesday they were sent to Wahoo, this state, where they family formerly resided. At the present time Mr. Granger and daughter are receiving medical and the attention of kind friends who are administering to their daily needs, and will recover. In the death of wife and mother, the family have the sympathy of this city. Friday 4 November 1892
