The Ringgold Record, 1873

BURNED TO DEATH.

- On the evening of the 31st inst. Frank, son of L. WORTHINGTON, three years (sic) of age. While his mother was milking; his father being in Mt. Ayr. He was trying to get the stove hook out of the stove hearth with his apron, when his clothes caught fire and burned nearly off before his mother could get to him, she being about fifteen rods from the house. He met her outside and she succeeded in smothering the flames; but not soon enough; he lived only a few hours.
