Saylor 1906 (& Martin)

My great Aunt Nelma wrote a book about her (my) family. In the book she tells of a tragic fire on January 7, 1906 just west of Spruce Hill, PA., in which her grandfather, Isaac Saylor and his daughter Anna Mabel Saylor Martin died along with Anna's 5 children....out of nine in the house that night 7 died. Thank you!!! I finally found them!!! If anyone has any idea how I might find an archived newspaper article...surely it was headlines to have nine die.....5 of them children in a housefire. Thank you so much, for any pointers!! They were close friends with the Esh family at that time, if that helps at all.
