      Pontiac, Michigan, Monday, April 2, 1906Horrible Death From Gasoline ___________Birmingham Woman Meets Frightful AccidentShe Suffers Untold Agonies And Is Burned Almost Beyond RecognitionFault Appears To Have Been With a Leaky Pan in the Stove(Special to the Daily Press)Birmingham, April 2---A most shocking and frightful tragedy occurred here yesterday morning when Mrs. Isaac Lemon was so serioulsy burned by the gasoline thrown from an exploded stove that she died a few hours later.Mrs. Lemon had lighted the gasoline stove, which was a self-generator, and was preparing the morning meal, when a son called to her that the stove was smoking. Mrs Lemon who turned at once to regulate it, did so just in time to receive a quantity of burning oil, which immediately set her clothing on fire. Her husband and two sons tried in vain to put out the blaze but did not succeed. Mrs. Lemon's body was deeply burned and her head was frightfully scorched.Dr. Shaw was summoned at once, and did everything possible to relieve her terrible suffering. The accident occurred at 7 o'clock and death took place yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock.Deceased was 38 years old and the mother of seven children, five of whom are at home. The husband, Isaac Lemon, a teamster for the hoop and stave factory. The family resides on Stanley street in the home known as the old Taylor house, having moved here from Armada but a few months ago.It is thought that the valve which regulated the feeding of the gasoline in some way, became loosened allowing a quantity of the liquid to run into the pan beneath the burner, and that this liquid did not become ignited until a draft from an opened door blew the flames back upon it, causing it to explode. Mrs. Lemon's face was burned so badly that her eyes were swollen until closed and her jaws were rididly set long before she died. Although wrapped in absorbant contton and oils, she suffered intensely until death mercifully relieved her. Mrs. Lemon's mother, who resides in New Hampshire, has been notified and will be present at the funeral, if possible. The funeral arrangements will be made later.
      Received from Richard Paul Lemon before his death.
