Wife's General Notes

Saturday August 25, 1888
Charleston, W. Va., August 17

A store room in Wallace and Kelley's hotel in West Charleston, caught fire this morning at 3 o'clock. Both buildings and contents were consumed. Few household effects were saved from the hotel building. Simon Wallace and his mother, Mrs. Rachel Wallace, who were sleeping in the rooms over the store, where they and Mr. Kelley and family made their homes, perished in the flames. The bodies were so charred that it was almost impossible to recognize them as human beings. Mr. Kelley and wife were absent visiting friends in Putnam County when the fire occurred. The fire is believed to be of incendiary origin, beginning near the ground in the rear of the store. A large crowd was out long before the building was consumed. Had it been known that anyone was inside they could have been rescued with little difficulty.
It is reported that $800 in money was in the building, and robbery was at the bottom of the whole affair. The loss on the two buildings and contents in about $2000 each.
Mr. Wallace was a popular young man, thirty one years of age, and came here from Poca District four years ago. There are a number of stories afloat of a conflicting nature. All indications point to a terrible crime, and startling developments are expected at an early date.
