A very sad newspaper story about Mrs. Stoll's parents and her sister's family. From The News (Frederick, MD), June 28, 1956, "Three Killed In Auto Wreck".

SPARKILL, N.Y., June 27   Death struck through three generations of a Baltimore family today when their car was smashed in a mishap involving two trucks. Three other members of the family and the driver of a truck were taken to a hospital with critical injuries. The dead, tentatively identified through personal papers and officers' phone calls to Baltimore relatives, were listed as: Mrs. Ida Wiedenhoeft, about 60; her daughter, Mrs. Hilda Scochin, 41, and Mrs. Scochin's son, Kenneth, 9. Those injured were believed to be August Wiedenhoeft, 64, husband of Mrs. Wiedenhoeft; Nicholas Scochin, 46, husband of Mrs. Scochin, and Katherine Scochin, 3, the Scochins' daughter.
