Mrs. Frederick Neidenthal and Christiana Neidenthal
Canton -- Mrs. Frederick Neidenthal, 48, Brewster, and daughter Christiana, 5, are dead as the result of burns received when a lamp which Mrs. Neidenthal had filled with gasoline in mistake for kerosene, exploded at their home Saturday. Both died in Massillon City Hospital Sunday night. When the lamp exploded the little girl's clothes caught fire. The mother attempted to extinguish the flames but her own clothes ignited and both were fatally burned. Mrs. Neidenthal threw the lamp to the bottom of the stairs, where it was seized by her son, Elmer, aged 10, who threw it out of doors receiving serious burns. The lad, however, rushed half a mile for a doctor to minister to his mother's and sister's injuries. Mrs. Neidenthal is survived by her husband and eight children. [Lima News, Jan 12, 1920]
