201 A Fatal Accident.
WHEATLAND, Ill., Sept. 27, 1893.

On last Tuesday evening, while Mr. Joe Bunch was absent from home, his wife stepped from the house into the garden, leaving their little 4-year-old daughter, Blanche, by the cook stove.

During the mother’s absence her clothes became ignited. Her mother on hearing her screams rushed to her rescue, but before the flames could be extinguished she was so badly burned that she died from the effects.

Blanche was a sweet little girl, dearly loved by all who knew her.

The family have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement.

217 According to NE Families Gen & Hist by Cutter,

William came from England in 1630, the same year that
Boston was founded, probably in the fleet with Sir Richard Saltonstall and Governor
Winthrop. William was made freeman in 1631, and was a very prominent man; he was
ensign in command of one of the four companies sent from Watertown tochastise the
Pequot Indians, August, 1636; he was later made captain for Watertown, and in May,
1637, he was one of four commissioners appointed by the court to provide men, ammunition
and provisions for the Pequot war. On September 3, 1638, the court granted William
200 acres for his services in what was afterwards Framingham; he had no family; he
was an original member of the "Great Artillery Company", incorporatedMarch 13, 1638-9,
long known as the "Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company". William returned to
England shortly after 1645, and was living there as late as 1657. 
JENNISON, William (I2537)
218 According to NE Families Gen & Mem, by Cutter ...
In the records he is called Francis Kendall, alias Miles. There are several explanations of this
record. It was common with emigrants to America to take assumed namesto avoid vexatious
laws, and there is a tradition that Kendall left England against the wishes of his
family, using the name of Miles until he was settled in this country.

Maybe sister of Mabel Kendall

Was on list of prisoners forwarded to St. Louis aboard the steamer Hattie May from Glascow 04 Nov 1864. He was transferred to the Gratiot Street Prison Hospital in St. Louis on 11 Nov 1864. He died there on 05 Dec 1864. Cause of death was listed as measles.

The following was taken from the National Park Service - American Battlefield Protection Program

Battle of Glasgow
Other Names: None
Location: Howard County, MO

Campaign: Price's Missouri Expedition (1864)

Date(s): October 15, 1864

Principal Commanders: Col. Chester Harding [US]; Brig. Gen. John B. Clark and Brig. Gen. Joe Shelby [CS]

Forces Engaged: Garrison (800) [US]; unknown [CS]

Estimated Casualties: 450 total (US 400; CS 50)

Description: While Maj. Gen. Sterling Price led his men westward across Missouri, he decided to send a detachment to Glasgow to liberate weapons and supplies in an arms storehouse, purported to be there. This combined mounted infantry, cavalry, and artillery force laid siege to the town and the fortifications on Hereford Hill. Before dawn on October 15, Confederate artillery opened on the town and Rebels advanced on Glasgow by various routes, forcing the Yankees to fall back. The Union forces retreated out of town and up the hill toward the fortifications on Hereford Hill. There they formed a defensive line in this area, but the Confederates continued to advance. Convinced that he could not defend against another Confederate attack, Col. Chester Harding surrendered around 1:30 pm. Although Harding destroyed some Federal stores, Price?s men found rifle-muskets, overcoats, and horses. The Confederates remained in town for three days before rejoining the main column with new supplies and weapons and marching on towards Kansas City. The victory and capture of supplies and weapons were a boost to Price?s army's morale.

Result(s): Confederate victory
