Brandon, Jennie (? - 31 MAR 1900)

Mrs. Jennie Brandon, residing alone on a farm about four miles southwest of here (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.), accidentally set fire to her clothing about 9 p.m. on Saturday evening last and her entire body was burned in a horrible manner. She lingered until about 2 a.m. on Monday morning when death came to her relief. Her husband, Al Brandon, died at the Mendota insane asylum about two years ago. She leaves no relatives in this vicinity and in her ante-mortem statement expressed a desire that her farm and personal property worth about $1000 be turned over to Wm. Jerard, who had been her friend. Her former home, we understand, was about seven miles from Memphis, Tenn., but she has been a resident of this vicinity for nearly twenty years.
