Treasured Story of a Little Heroine
Do you have a family story that is intriguing and you wish you knew the facts? One such story posted in the FamilySearch Forums was about two sisters, one of whom died, in a fire in Wyoming. Through the FamilySearch Forums, the research help community assisted in finding the true story by pointing to online digitized newspapers for Evanston, Wyoming, where an article about the fire was found. There was a fire when the parents were away from home. Three-year-old Jennette Quintrell and her little infant sister Alberta were surrounded by fire. Jennette's heroic courage was amazing as she pushed Alberta before her out of the home even though her own clothing was on fire. Jennette died shortly after from the burns, but her heroism and love for her sister is an inspiration to us all. Every day, people discover their family stories through FamilySearch Forums.
