Five-Year-Old Child Meets With Peculiar Death

Republic Special - Dallas, TX - March 7 -

Nellie A. BOLTON, 5 years old, a daughter of Robert D. Bolton, a Dallas merchant, died today after suffering many hours of agony of peculiar origin. The child last night drank from the spout of a coffeepot which was sitting on the family cook stove, not knowing that the coffee was boiling hot. The liquid burned her throat and other internal organs fatally. A slight burn on the chin was the only external hurt the child sustained.
This is just a guess, but I think Lagow Cemetery is the most logical place her burial may have been. Her father was buried there in 1913, 12 years later, and it is very close to Elm Street. By the by, 732 Elm Street does not exist as a house anymore. And it is only two blocks from Dealey Plaza - yes, that Dealey Plaza - where the 6th Floor Museum and exhibits detail the day JFK was assassinated in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, TX.
