THE KAPUNDA HERALD, Friday, July 29, 1898. FATAL BURNING ACCIDENT. - Mrs. Mary Ann Sampson, aged 78 years, living in Queen street, Kapunda, was so badly burnt at about half-past six o'clock on Friday evening that she died on Saturday morn- ing. The old lady lived by herself, but next door to her daughter (Mrs Trenberth), who attended to her wants, and on Friday evening was sitting near the fire, which was in a grate. The wind was blowing strongly and came down the chimney, and caused the flames from the fire to project through the bars of the grate. Her grand- son Gordon Trenberth, who lighted her candle and took her tea in, cautioned his grandmother about the danger, whereupon she shifted her chair further back. The lad went into his tea, and about a quarter- of-an-hour afterwards he heard screams. He, followed by his father, ran outside and found the yard lighted up. On looking towards his grandmother's door he saw her standing in a small porchway with the flames rising over her head. In a moment the poor old lady fell, and by this time Mr Trenberth arrived, and, with the assistance of Mr Edward Jenkins, who had been attracted by the fire from the Railway- road, put the fire out. Dr E McM Glynn was called, but he gave no hope of the suf- ferer, who was well nigh roasted. An inquest was held on Saturday afternoon by Mr J Small, J.P., when a verdict of death through accidental burning, no blame being attachable to anyone, was returned. CORONER'S INQUEST FATAL BURNING ACCIDENT On Saturday afternoon 0r John Small, J.P., held an enquiry into the circum- stances surrounding the death of Mary Ann Sampson, which occured at her residence, Queen-street, Kapunda, on Saturday morning. Gorden Wasley Trenberth, 13 years of age, deposed that he was a grandson of the deceased. the deceased lived alone, but was attended to by his mother. He remembered Friday evening, when, about six o'clock, he took his grandmother's tea in. She was sitting in front of the fire. He lit a candle, leaving it alight on the table. He told his grandmother to go further back from the fire as he thought she was too near to it, as a strong wind was blowing the fire through the grate- bars. She shifted back a little. He then returned to his parent's house. About ten minutes afterwards he heard a scream, and on going out found his grandmother in the yard in flames. Her clothes were on fire at the bottom and the wind blew the flames up over her. His father came out and put the fire out, his grandmother having then fallen down. Elisha Trenberth deposed that the body was that of Mary Ann Sampson, his mother-in-law. Witness lived next door. About 6 o'clock on Friday evening he heard screams. Went outside and found the yard lit up. He found Mrs Sampson ablaze, standing in a little porch of the house. She fell before he got to her. He caught up an old carpet and put the flames out with the assistance of young Jenkins. He took deceased into the house and sent for the doctor. She was unable to give any explanation as to how the fire happened. She could not speak. She died at quarter to 7 on Saturday morning. She had been looked after and attended to by his family. She was in her 78th year. He found a chair near the fire-place, in which there was a good fire. Dr E McM Glynn deposed that he was called on Friday evening at about 6.30. He found the deceased lying on a bed. The bulk of her clothing was burnt to a cinder. Both legs were badly burnt and the right arm and face also. She was suffering great pain so far as he could understand from her incoherent statements; she had been a little weak-minded for some months. He dressed her injuries, but knew the result would be fatal during the night. The cause of death was shock from burning. Edward Jenkins deposed that he was passing near the rear of Mrs Sampson's house about 6.15 on Friday evening. He heard screams, and looking in the direc- tion saw a blaze. He ran over, thinking the house was on fire. On reaching the place he found that Mrs Sampson was on fire in the porch. Mr and Mrs Trenberth were putting the fire out. Witness assisted to extinguish the fire. Helped to carry her inside and put her on a bed. The doctor was sent for. The jury returned a verdict that deceased's death was due to accidental burning, there being no blame attachable to anyone.

Did have William Henry Sampson ... until I saw the marriage index which has a John Henry Sampson that fits age-wise. There's also a younger brother named William.
