HERITAGE, Daughter of HENRY F.
Young Lady Burned to Death in Alabama. - The "West Alabamian" of this date says:
We learn that a daughter of Mr. Henry F. Heritage, of this county, was burned to
death a few days ago, under the following sad circumstances. The older members
of the family were absent from home, and a little son set fire to a field of
broom-sedge near the house; and the daughter, to protect the fire from reaching
the fence, attempted to extinguish it. In the effort her clothes caught fire,
and, no one being near to assist her, she was unable to put them out until she
was fatally burned. She at last reached the spring, put out the fire of her
burning clothes, and succeeded in getting back to the house, but died soon after
from the effects of the burn. Source: Tuesday, February 14, 1860, Vincent's

*Calculated relationship
Departed this life by fire

She was a member of the Baptist Church of Christ, up to her death
Died in the full triumph of her Savior.
The tint of health has left her cheek,
And cold is her fair brow,
Her eyes are closed, her pulse is still
She is an angel now.
