From a newspaper clipping dated 18th Aug 1929. (Perhaps the Albany news) Death Of Little Wallace Pickins Fincher A shadow of gloom spread over the two communities of Albany and Fort Griffin when news circulated that the little fifteen months old son of Mr. and Mrs. Theron Fincher had swallowed coal oil. . The little fellow was playing his usual way, disturbing no one when he ran onto a small can oil placed near the stove for aid in building fires. His mother heard him strangling and ran to him. Not being able to determine how much oil he had taken, Mr. & Mrs. Fincher rushed the child Dr. Buchanan of Albany and then to the sanitarium in Breckenridge. There all was done for him that could be done, but in vain, and the little fellow passed away at eleven o'clock Sunday night. His remains were brought back to home of his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Pickins Fincher of Albany. The sadness of the hours was made somewhat easier for the mother by the presence of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wallace and one of her brothers, Doyle, of Mt. Calm, and Dale, another brother of Lubbock, Mr. and Mrs. Melborn Fincher, Austin, Rev. and Mrs. Charles Tucker, Rule, and Miss Winona visiting in Waxahachie, were all called home on account of the death of their little nephew. Funeral services were held at the cemetery under the direction of Rev. Charles Tucker, of Rule, with Rev. Boyd, pastor of the Methodist church of Albany, assisting. The floral offering was profuse and beautiful. Our hearts ache for the bereaved ed ones, and we extend syropathy in this hour of deepest sorrow. This home will he sweeter -for the brief visit of the little one,and there is consolation in the thought that he has gone to live with Jesus.
