Wife of Henry

Died from childbirth fever brought on by an explosion at the
factory. Husband, Henry, had gone to factory to rescue a
fireman from the wreckage caused by a boiler explosion. His
appearance coming up the hill home later so frightened Eliz-
abeth that she gave birth prematurely to son Henry and died
10 days later.
