THE WESTERN STAR, 18 November 1893
Obituary of GRACE MILLER

The many friends and acquaintances of Mr. and Mrs. V. J. Miller, in this city, were pained to learn by telegram Monday morning, of the death of little four year old Grace Miller, at Wichita, from the effects of a kick from her father's horse, she received in this city, Thursday of
last week, a full report of which was given in last weeks paper. It was not supposed the little girl was more seriously hurt than her jaw being fractured until the worst came. As before stated, Mr. and Mrs. Miller
took their daughter to Wichita to a skilled surgeon, Dr. A. H. Fabrique, to have the fracture treated, arriving there Friday of last week. The doctor writes that he had a dentist make a cast of the mouth, from which there was made a splint to fit accurately and the fractured bones were set Friday evening. The next morning he called and noticed the child had dilated pupils which made him feel anxious as to her condition. At his evening call, however, the child was sleeping, and he felt encouraged. But at nine o'clock the same evening (Saturday) Grace was seized with convulsions, and died within an hour. The cause of death was evidently
concussion of the brain. The remains were taken to Ann Arbor, Michigan for burial. This was one of the saddest accidents that has happened among us for a long time, and the grief stricken parents have the sympathy of the entire community.
