      Graham, Aug 19th - A very sad accident occurred near here yesterday evening, when the young wife of Joseph BURRESS was accidentally killed by the explosion of a dynamite primer. It happened that some boys had the primers with short fuses attached to them and were trying to scare each other when one exploded and struck Mrs. BURRESS in the breast, over the right lung, severing an artery and causing internal hemorrhages. She lived abut five hours after it occurred. Mr. BURRESS and wife, who were married in June, last, were on a visit to Mr. Burress' parents, living on A St. Clair's farm. Mrs. Burress, before marriage was a Miss Puckett, of Thompson Valley.Clinch Valley News August 20, 1912The following is taken from the Graham letter to the Bluefield Telegraph, Aug, 27:It is reported here that the estate of the late Mrs. Joseph Burress, who met her death at the home of Anse Burress last Sunday week by being hit with a piece of dynamite cap, contemplates instituting a damage suit against the county of Tazewell, on the grounds that the couny was negligible in permitting the dynamite caps to be carelessly handled, making it easy for boys and irresponsible persons to have access to them. The caps in possession of the Colwell and Burress boys had been picked up, it is claimed, by the boys from one of the road camps. The road work in that section is being done by force account by the county. It is further stated here that an effort will be made to send both the Colwell and the Burress boy, who are charged with being responsible for Mrs. Burress' death, to the reform school at Richmond. The Burress boy is a brother of Joseph Burress, husband of the dead woman.
