Bettridge, Mrs. Mary

The East Liverpool Tribune

Mrs. Mary Bettridge, aged seventy-six, while walking across the kitchen floor at her residence, on Sunday (April 30, 1899) last, failed to observe that a trap-door, leading into the cellar, was open and she was precipitated through the opening, receiving injuries that produced death within a few hours. It is a singular coincidence that the mother of the deceased, also a resident of East Liverpool, met her death in precisely the same manner some thirty years ago.
