19-Dec-1902

Last Sunday evening a little four year
old girl of Mr. and Mrs. John Massey,
residing southwest of the Sayre Depot,
accidently set fire to its clothing
and was fatally burned.
When the child discovered that its
clothes were on fire, it ran to its
mother who was milking a cow,
but when it reached her side,
its clothes were a mass of flames.
The little one lingered until near
3:00 Monday morning, when death
relieved its suffering.
The remains were laid to rest
in the cemetery near Doxey on
Tuesday.
Mr. Massey is an employee of
the Choctaw Railroad and was at
work in the roundhouse when
the horrible accident occurred.
