Miss Ethel Sampson
Last Friday night Ethel, daughter of John Sampson, of Charleston township, aged about 12 years, was accidentally burned to death in her father’s house during the absence of her parents.  After supper Mr. and Mrs. Sampson went to the residence of a near neighbor, Mr. Thomas Kelley, leaving Ethel and three younger children at home.  Ethel was expecting to enter school at Mansfield soon, and after washing up the supper dishes she put the younger children to bed and then took up her studies for the evening.  Finally becoming tired and sleepy she placed three chairs before the kitchen stove, wrapped herself in a bed quilt and laid down on the chairs to rest.  She fell asleep and was awakened by fire which had communicated from the stove to the bed quilt and her clothing.  She instantly ran into the bedroom, seized another quilt and wrapped it about her to smother the flames.  Failing in this she rushed out of doors and throwing herself prostrate on the ground rolled in the snow.  This only served to fan the flames and she returned to the house in time to save that from destruction by throwing the burning chairs and clothing out of doors.  When the parents returned home the poor girl met them at the door with every thread of her clothing except the waist band and neck band of her dress burned from her body.  Dr. Mastin of Whitneyville was called, but all efforts to save her were unavailing and the suffering child died after about seven hours of the most excruciating torment.  Her funeral which was largely attended was held at the residence of her parents on Saturday last.  (Tuesday, January 10, 1882, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Clark Faulkner
Chatham, January 20, 1882.--The people of Little Marsh have been called together twice this week to pay the last tribute of respect to the dead.  The funeral of Mrs. Clark Faulkner was held on Sunday.  She died very suddenly on Friday last at or near Danville, Pa., whither she and her husband had lately moved.  (Tuesday, January 24, 1882, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Wass
Mrs. Wass, wife of William Wass, died on Sunday last at her home in Chatham, in her 85th year.  She had been in feeble health for many years.  Mrs. Wass was born at Elmira, NY, in 1797, when that place was hardly a hamlet.  She was married to Mr. Wass in 1818.  In 1830 they moved into Chatham township.  At that time there was only one public road in the township and but one span of horses--the property of Reuben Cloos, who was at one time engaged in the manufacture of pearl ash.  At the time of her death, Mrs. Wass had been a professor of religion for 50 years, and she has now joined the Church triumphant and has left a most worthy example as a wife, a mother and a Christian.  She lived to raise up a large family of children.  The family circle was not broken until about six years ago, when a daughter died.  The rest of her children--six boys and three girls--are all living, as well as their father who is 87 years old.  There are but few people who live to enjoy 64 years of married life, as Mr. and Mrs. Wass did.  (Tuesday, January 24, 1882, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
