I did not know where to post this. I was curious as to what became of the Brawnes: The mother, Fanny, Samuel, and Margaret?

Sad story, what happened to Fanny's mother must have been horrific, we forget in our electric lightbulb modern complacency the danger of fires, candles as a very real risk every day when you're surrounded by them and depend on them for heat, light and cooking.

Yes and fires were a big part of life. Seemed like fires were always destroying things back in the day.

We're a bit immune to it all with our insatiable appetite for safety (at least here in America). The number and type of "fire safety" regulations that I encounter is beyond comprehension. Many thousands of dollars are spent on fire safety. I live in New York State - the land of constantly evolving and adding of new regulations for fire safety. Lights, vents, hoods, horns, fans, locks, trip wires, suppressants, materials, triggers, shut-offs, backups, electrical, mechanical and other devices are all used for ONE small kitchen with two residential stoves (with their very own built-in fire safety designs!) and they are ALL required to meet fire codes in New York State. And that doesn't even include the yearly fire inspections! You couldn't start a fire in the kitchen if you tried everything in the book, short of a nuclear explosion.

It is a different world today, for sure.
