    • Newspaper article, Pottstown [PA] Mercury, p. 2, (2 Dec 1971):
      "Infant Dies In Blaze Near Elverson
      "Fire swept through a two-story apartment building five miles south of Elverson in Wallace Township Wednesday killing an 11-month-old baby.....
      "The blaze broke out in the kitchen of the Robert C. Snouffer apartment ... quickly spreading to an upper bedroom where the child was sleeping.
      "Sara B. Snouffer was found in a crib late in the afternoon after firemen extinguished the blaze and were able to get into the building.
      "Dr. Thomas Monteith ... said the baby died of asphyxiation caused by smoke inhalation.***
      "According to fire officials, Snouffer and his wife, Sara, were able to get out of the home carrying one daughter to safety. Smoke and heat prevented the rescue of the other daughter.
      "Mrs. Snouffer's father, Ralph Short, owns the old farm house, which was converted into two apartments."
