Obituary

THE TRAGIC DEATH OF JOHN B. FASSETT,
AND HIS WIFE IN MORETOWN

John B. Fassett and wife, aged about 60 years, were burned in their mills on Moretown Sunday night. The saw mill, grist mill, and box factory, which were connected, took fire from a heated arbor in the box factory, but the fire was supposed to be extinguished. Fassett and his wife then went to bed in their rooms over the saw mill. At 2 o'clock Sunday morning the village was aroused, the mills being nearly consumed with fire. The remains of Mrs. Fassett were found on the edge of the river near the saw mill--burned to a crisp. The remains of Mr. Fassett were found in the ruins. The rooms over the saw-mill were thirty feet from the ground on the front side, and 40 feet above the river, on the back side, and the fire in the box factory cut off all means of escape, except by jumping from the windows. The loss of the building was $10,000.
