Tragic Incident

The following was reported in the Daily Northwestern:

Children Burned to Death
Mankato, May 26 [1893] — The house of Frank Manaige at St. Clair,
fifteen miles from this city, was burned yesterday, and two
of his children, a nine-year-old girl and a two-year-old boy,
were burned to a crisp, the remainder of the family having
narrowly escaped. One child was dropped out of a second-story
widow and saved, and Mrs. Manaige saved herself by jumping
from a second-story widow. She remained in the burning house
in search of her missing children until almost overcome by smoke,
and was forced to leave. The fire originated from a gasoline stove
which the older daughter was attempting to light.


She died 13 March 1897 (aged 33) and is buried in McPherson Union Cemetery, Saint Clair, Blue Earth County, Minnesota. (Find a Grave)
