Horribly scalded.

The horrifying account of a farm accident that befell Doctor Simmons, oldest son of Montraville and Annie Henderson Simmons.

Logansport Daily Pharos, 16 August 1905.

Dock Simmons survived his terrible burns, but bad luck dogged him, and in 1917 he suffered another agonizing injury. Though I have not found his death certificate, evidence indicates that — despite all this — Dock lived into the 1940s.

    I very much enjoyed reading your blog. I came across it searching for information about “James E. McNeely” or “J. E. McNeely” of Granite Hill, Rowen County, N.C. He must have lived circa 1820 to 1870’s. I thought I would ask if that name comes up in any of your research? I can be reached at christopherturman(at)hotmail . com Any leads would be most appreciated. Regards, Christopher
