In the year 1912 my mother and her brother and sisters were sitting by the fire in the month of November. It was a very bad night and my mother's sister was sitting in the hob. A flash of lightning came down the chimney and burned the side of her face. The rest were thrown around the house but not much hurt. She recovered after two years and is in America now. The end of the house was knocked but no one was killed.
