LETCHER COUNTY - COLLY
Nerva Jane Hall, age 7, daughter of Thomas Hall, a widower, was burned to death in her cottage home here Friday.
Her dress caught from a grate fire, and was entirely consumed by the flames, burning her body almost to a crisp.
The father, as usual, was doing chores of the household, returned to find the lifeless body of his only daughter.
We extend to the father our heartfelt sympathy in this, his sad hour of trouble.
Nerva Jane Hall
