Seventh child of Iro and Hattie J. Secoy
Grandson of Charles B. and Sarah E. Secoy

The Toronto Republican, June 1, 1911, pg.1
The death of the nine year old son of Mr/Mrs Iro Secoy, who lived a few miles southwest of town, occurred in a distressing manner Tuesday (May 30, 1911). The mother and part of the children were in Toronto attending Decoration services. Mr. Secoy and the boy and an older brother remained home. They were shooting birds with a 22 rifle, in the afternoon, when a cartridge became jammed. The gun was in Mr. Secoy's hands, and the older boy, in showing how to extract the cartridge, discharged the gun and the smaller boy being in the line of the bullet, was shot through the head and instantly killed. The burial took place at Toronto yesterday. Rev. Oliver conducting the services.
