Fabian, Edith (1914 - 9 OCT 1917)
Tuesday afternoon while Mrs. Clarence Fabian of the town of York, Clark County, Wis. was out looking after the cattle, she heard screams from the house and hastening in found her little 3-year-old daughter Edith burning up, her clothes quite burned off. Mr. Fabian, who was in the village shopping, was, with Dr. Rath, hastily summoned home. They brought the little one here by auto to the Rice Davis home, where the best of care was given her, but death was too near. The little sufferer passed on into the great beyond about 8 o'clock that evening.
Just how the child set herself afire is not known. It will be remembered that this family lost all their household goods and personal effects in a fire about a year ago, when their home, then on the Cash Ide farm, burned down. The family now lives on the Jack Parrott farm in the town of York. (Granton News)
