EMERICK, Mary

Eugene Smith, aged 20, shot and instantly killed Mary, the six-year-old daughter of Sylvester Emerick at Ellerslie Tuesday morning. Young Smith, with three or four other boys, was in a barn shooting rats, when a bullet fired at a rat evidently went through a crevice and struck the little child, who was playing in an adjoining lot. The ball struck the child in the left side and came out the right side. The sad affair was purely an accident yet it has cast a gloom over the entire village, and caused the parents of the child to be almost prostrated with grief. Young Smith is almost wild over the occurrence.

EMERICK, Sherwood

Sylvester Emerick, a Pennsylvania railroad engineer residing at Ellerslie, while hunting groundhogs on the mountain opposite Ellerslie, accidentally shot and killed his 14-year-old son, Sherwood. The father had stationed the boy to watch a hole into which he thought the groundhog would go, and while he was away, the boy got in front of the hole. Mr. Emerick observed the reeds shaking near the hole and saw his son's brown cap, which he mistook for a groundhog; taking quick aim he fired and upon going up was horrified to find that he had shot his son. Mr. Emerick picked the little fellow up and hurried down the mountain toward home, but the boy died while yet three-quarters of a mile from home. Sherwood was a bright little fellow, and besides his parents leaves a brother and several sisters. This is the second accident of this kind in the family. A little daughter of the Emericks was killed by the careless handling of a gun sometime ago. Mr. Emerick is overcome with grief.
