STEMMER, d/o J. A.

    Ebensburg Alleghanian, 13 Mar 1862, Contributed by Patty Millich

Burned to Death

The Cambria TRIBUNE says that a little daughter of Mr. J. A. Stemmer of Johnstown, aged about eleven years, was burned to death on Friday evening, 28th inst., under the following circumstances: The little girl was holding the candle while an elder sister was pouring carbon oil from a jug into a small can, when by some means the flame communicated to the oil, exploding with a loud report and inflicting injuries upon the little girl which resulted in her death next morning. Strange to say, the other girl escaped without injury.
