Ellis County Capital, Arnett, OK.
Friday, October 5, 1923

A twelve year old child whose name is unknown was found dead on the banks of the Canadian river at Camargo, Thursday morning, by citizens of that place. It is presumed that the child has been drowned in the high waters of the past few days and the body washed upon the banks of the river near Camargo.

Later news came to Arnett that the child’s body found at Camargo, was that of one of the Burton children: The Burton family lived on the north bank of the Canadian river near Durham. Their home and the home of another family living near them was washed into the river Monday night or Tuesday by the flood waters. All members of the two families escaped with the exception of the Burton child.
