The Short Life of Demmie Hutcherson

Full of life and a grass burr on the Plains of Hall County ended her short life. Demmie Hutcherson was pulling a grass burr from her finger with her teeth when she inhaled the burr and it became infected. It ended her  young life on February 13, 1892 at 15 years of age.. ...that's what happened in the pioneer days when no doctor could resolve such a simple thing . . .  In this photo from 1891 Demmi is wearing the plaid hat and is is with her sisters Ellen and Lora.  Photo and information provided by Brent Lemons
