THE OKLAHOMAN (Oklahoma City, OK)
5/13/1930 TWO MORE DIE OF GAS BLAST (Tuesday)

Fatalities in Explosion In Seminole Storm Cellar Mounts to Seven.

Seminole, May 12—The death list in a storm cellar explosion near here last Saturday mounted to seven Monday when Martha Breedlove, 13 years old, and Mrs. Nellie Blakey died in a Seminole hospital. Five persons died shortly after the blast.

With the death of the girl, the entire Breedlove family, with the exception of the father, Charles Breedlove, perished. Mrs. Breedlove, and her five-year-old son, LeRoy, died soon after the blast and another daughter, Dorothy, 3 years old, died in a hospital Saturday night.

Others who lost their lives when the blast shot a tongue of flames from the cellar were Bonnie Edwards, 7 years old, and her brother, Sonny Boy, 5 years old. They were the children of Mr. and Mrs. R.L. Edwards.

The two families and Mrs. Blakey lived in the same house on a Gypsy Oil Co. lease near Mission City, four miles southwest of here. They had gone into the cellar to escape an approaching storm when one of the children lighted a match. Gas, which had accumulated in the cellar, exploded when the match was lighted. Cause of the gas in the cellar had not been determined.

Mr. and Mrs. Edwards had just started into the cellar when the explosion occurred and were burned slightly.
