Wednesday's Child: [Child] King

Sadly, this could have been taken from any of today's newspapers.

Alexandria Gazette
January 5, 1859

ACCIDENT. -- A correspondent of the Virginia Sentinel says: -- "A little by about six years of age, son of C. J. King, near Gainesville, Prince William county, Va., was accidentally shot during Christmas, while at play with one of his little brothers and sisters in a room by themselves, where the gun was setting.  The gun is supposed to have been fired by one or both of the little ones, in entire ignorance of the danger."
