The fire started during practice for a Christmas pageant when somebody brushed up against a candle or gas jet and caught her costume made of some sort of oil cloth on fire. This person then panicked running through the crowd and spreading the fire. The little girls are buried in a cemetery out on State Street just east of 18th. There were no Christmas pageants at St Francis for almost 100 years.|

We lived at 50x Madison St. and often saw our dog watch something ''cross'' the living room and dining room floor at night. One night I glanced down the basement stairs and saw what appeared to be just 2 legs move to the side and disappear quickly.
I went into the kitchen to see my mom and stepdad and told them I thought I just saw the ghost. My stepdad asked me if it just looked like 2 legs. I said it did. He said he had seen it before as well.|
We had never spoken before then what the ghost was or looked like so to have that sort of validation was pretty cool.
