Trove Tuesday - Tragedy

Amy Houston from Branches, Leaves & Pollen suggested the great idea of a Trove Tuesday theme. 

My 2nd great grand Uncle, John Kelly, is the subject of these news articles I found in Trove.

Very sadly he lost his wife in August 1888 and then tragically his 17 year old daughter died 

from burns in a backyard accident in December 1888.
