MARCH 5, 1909

Helpless, in an invalid chair, Alice Ryan, the sixteen year old daughter of John Ryan, formerly a resident near Strawn, was burned to death in her father's home, 124 Bishop street, Chicago, on Monday (Mar.1). Just how the fatality occurred will never be known. The girl's step-mother was washing in the basement. She had been down stairs about half an hour when, upon her return, she found the room filled with smoke and upon investigation, found Alice, sitting in her chair, dead, with her clothing burned off her body. The catastrophe occurred on Monday afternoon at about three o'clock.
Deceased was born at Seward, Neb., in July, 1892. Her mother, who is dead, was a Miss Mangan, of the vicinity of Strawn, and her parents resided southeast of Strawn about twenty years ago.
Alice is survived by her father, step-mother, one sister and one brother. She was a niece of Mrs. Fred P. Garrity, of Chicago, wo until a few weeks ago resided southwest of Chatsworth, and also of Mrs. James Freehill, of Germanville.
The remains were brought to Chatsworth on Wednesday afternoon, funeral services having been held at St. Brendan's church, Chicago, at eight o'clock in the morning, and the remains were laid to rest beside those of the mother in St. Patrick's cemetery.
Those who accompanied the remains were: Mr. and Mrs. John Ryan, John Ryan,Jr., Delia Ryan, Margaret Ryan, Fred P. Garrity, of Chicago; Mrs. M. Flanagan, of Fairbury; John Mangan, Loda.
