  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - May 9, 1923 Sandy Creek News - AGED REDFIELD RESIDENT BURNED TO DEATH - Last Friday evening, between seven and eight o'clock, a neighbor saw flames issuing from the window of the home of Mrs. Ellen Petrie Thompson, a lady 77 years of age. Hastening to the house the neighbor found Mrs. Thompson dead on the floor. The fire was extinguished. Just how the woman came to her death is not known. It is suspected that she lit a kerosene lamp which either exploded or she fell with it in her hand and the fire ignited her clothing. Mrs. Thompson, who had passed nearly all her life at Redfield, was the daughter of James Petrie, who settled in the town of Redfield many years ago, coming from Scotland with his family and where the victim of the fatality was born. She was the widow of George Thompson, prominent Redfield farmer who died about 15 years ago. A few years ago she made her home in Pulaski with the family of her brother, the late William Petrie. Surviving are two sisters, Mrs. Charles Crowe and Mrs. Eliza Simons both of Redfield.
