CHILD DIES IN CREEK was an article published in the Burkittsville Bulletin on August 14, 1825. The article reported the drowning of Eileen Treacle in Tappy East Creek on August 13.


A young child drowned yesterday in the shallow waters of Tappy East Creek. The Treacle Family is mourning the probable loss of their youngest child, Eileen, who is ten. The child's Body has not yet been found. The Treacle family had joined several other local families for our annual Wheat Harvests Picnic. Many people claim they heard "raucous splashing" and then saw the child struggling from afar. No one was able to arrive quickly enough to save this young life. Please take time to offer your prayers to the Treacle family.
