Young Girl was Lost in Blizzard
Echo - December 24, 1921
Guysboro, Dec 24 - "A young girl by the name of Casey, about fifteen years of age, while walking along from Queensport to Cole Harbour, was overtaken by the blizzard of last Wednesday and lost her way. This road which runs for miles through wilderness is little traveled and it was only by accident that the girl was found and carried to Cole Harbour in an unconscious condition after being exposed to the elements for two nights and a day without food or shelter of any kind. Dr. Aikens was summoned from Guysboro and although the girl's hands and feet were badly frozen, hopes are still entertained for her recovery, but that she is alive at all is little short of a miracle.


Note: The girl in the article was Mary Malvina Casey, daughter of Dennis Henry Casey and Eva Richard. She lost both her lower legs as a result of her ordeal. She went on to marry Leo Keating and have 3 children and adopt one.
