Awful Fate of Mrs. Wm. Harmon and Little Daugher—Mrs. F. B Johnson Badly Burned in Assisting Mrs. Harman.

While playing in font of an open grate, Wednesday afternoon, at the home of her parents on Pleasant Heights, the dress of Wm. Harmon’s five-year-old daughter caught fire. The child ran from the house and her screams soon brought the mother to the rescue, but her dress also ignited. Mrs. Frank Johnson, a next door neighbor, witnessed the scene and went to the rescue of the mother and child, and was badly burned. John Hall heard the screams and went to assist the ladies, extinguishing the flames, but not before Mrs. Harmon and daughter had been fatally burned and Mrs. Johnson painfully burned.
Mrs. Harmon and daughter died Wednesday night (May 1, 1901), after suffering in terrible agony.
Mrs. Johnson is confined to her bed, and is suffering excruciatingly.

East Liverpool Tribune

Miss Gertrude Kraatz, a sister of Mrs. Edwin Oppeit, died Thursday afternoon (Dec. 28, 1901), at her home at Martin’s Ferry. She was a very healthy girl of about fourteen, and about Thanksgiving bruised her heel in some unknown way, which became very painful, and was thought to be rheumatism. It grew worse despite medical attention and last week it was found necessary to amputate her foot, which demonstrated that blood poison of a very serious nature had appeared. She lived about a week after the operation. Mr. and Mrs. Oppeit are both at Martin’s Ferry, and will remain until after the funeral. The physicians say it is a very strange case. The bruise was very small when it first appeared, and the young lady had no recollection of how she hurt her heel. The bruise continued to enlarge and grow more painful from day to day.
