The Marion Daily Star (Marion, Ohio)
July 28, 1913--MISS TEDROW SWALLOWS ACID: Is found by relatives this morning. REFUSES TO GIVE AN EXPLANATION. No cause is known for the action. Miss Tedrow is twenty-four years of age and the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur Tedrow, residing near Caledonia--Visits neighbors Sunday evening and is Happy Mood.

Miss Georgia Tedrow, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur Tedrow, residing two and a half miles southwest of Caledonia, is in critical condition at the family home as the result of taking carbolic acid. Whether the acid was taken by suicidal intent or by accident is not known.

When the members of the family went to call the young woman, about 5 o'clock this morning, she was found unconscious and an empty bottle that had contained carbolic acid was found in the room. A physician was summoned from Caledonia, and she was revived after a time, but it is said that her parents and friends were unable to get her to say whether she had attempted to take her life or not.

Miss Tedrow is twenty-four years old, and there is no known cause why she should attempt to take her life, as she has always been of a happy disposition. With her parents she spent Sunday evening at the home of a neighbor, and enjoyed a very pleasant time socially entertaining into the spirit of the occasion with the others. The incident was the occasion for considerable excitement in the neighborhood, when it became known that Miss Tedrow had taken poison and quite a number gathered at the home. Rev. Father Joseph Denning, of St. Mary's Catholic Church of this city, was summoned to the Tedrow home this morning, in his commission of pastor of the family.

Miss Tedrow is the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Tedrow.
