BURLINGTON, N. J., Feb. 1William and Henry Wilcox, aged thirteen
and fourteen years respectively, sons of Henry Wilcox, an employee of
the Knickerbocker Ice Company at Kinkora, made fatal choice of the ice-bridged
Delaware as their path to school.
They had not gotten out of sight of their home before Henry broke through
and William, who bravely attempting the rescue of his brother, also
fell in. The father of the boys saw their mishap and hurried to their
aid, but just as he reached them the struggling boys sank for the last
time. The bodies were recovered.
