Birth: Aug. 18, 1887
Death: Jul. 28, 1910

Newspaper account of her death, "Farmer's Wife Seriously Burned. Paris, Tex., July 30

The residence of Ed Vanderburg at Checotah, was destroyed by fire Thursday and his wife was fatally burned.

She had started to make a fire to cook dinner, and thinking it had gone out, poured oil from a five-gallon can in the stove. Flames shot up and communicated to the can, exploding it. Her dress caught on fire, and she ran from the kitchen through a room to her hall, where she fell exhausted.

Her husband was away from home.

W. Perryman, living across the road, was attracted by her screams, and found her with every vestige of clothing, except her shoes, burned off and the flesh cooked and falling off her arms.

Although reported alive this morning, it is not thought she can possibly recover.
