Jewel was the daughter of Valentine and Ann Vought.


January 11, 1928 - Humboldt Republican - Jan 6 occurred in Livermore was one of the saddest affairs that has the death of Jewel Vought last Saturday afternoon. She was about 18 years old and the oldest daughter of V.V. Vought about 3 miles northwest of town.

Last Saturday forenoon she and her sister Laura were cleaning their school clothes with a high test gasoline in the kitchen. An explosion occurred burning Jewels arms, neck, and back, while Laura's face and hands were burned. Jewel ran from the house and the family helped put out the flames. The kitchen was a complete wreck.

A traveling salesman passing by and hearing screams and seeing fire through the windows stopped and assisted in putting out the blaze and taking Jewel and the rest of the family to Chas. Brown's, relatives of the family.

Dr Mulholland and Dr Sproule of Humboldt were called and aid rendered as far as possible. But the extent of the burns and shock were too much to bear and Jewel passed away peacefully Saturday afternoon about 3 o'clock.

Everyone was shocked and saddened by her death. She was born and raised near Livermore with the exception of a few years when they lived in Oregon. She would have graduated this spring from high school. The family have the sympathy of everyone in the community.
