209 A supplemental schedule to the 1880 US Census declares Margaret Mulholland of North Bay , Oneida County, NY is a self-supporting deaf female who has attended Washington Heights Institute for three years and became deaf at the age of thirteen.

Margaret did not become deaf until she was thirteen, therefore her cost for the three years would have been nine hundred dollars; a high price to pay for an Irish immigrant laborer with a family and a house worth forty dollars in 1855, but not out of the question for a Hotel owner and a Sand Lord. 
Mulholland, Margret (I1261)

212 A very remarkable and nearly serious accident happened last Saturday evening at the house of John Robus. Robus had gone to bed, and his daughter Julia had gone to church. Mrs. Robus was the only one about the house. She has been quite sick with the asthma for a long while, and been in the habit of having a hot brick placed to her feet upon going to bed. On this evening she concluded not to want for Julia, and heated the brik, wrapped it in a cloth, placed it in the bed, and then retired herself, soon after falling asleep. When Julia returned, her father called to her that he smelled something burning. She looked around, but saw nothing and told him that everything appeared all right.

227 About half-past nine o'clock last evening July 23, 1874, a sad and fatal accident occurred to Effie Landgraff, 191 East Railroad street, Syracuse. Miss L. is nineteen years; she had been playing on the piano at her father's residence, and had just finished. In closing the cover of the instrument it came in contact with a lamp held by a lad named John Moran. The lamp was knocked to the floor; the kerosene running out and igniting, setting fire to Miss Landgraff's dress. Instantly the lower part of her garments were in flames. She ran into the street and to the residence of Mrs. Moran, corner of Irving street, several houses distant. Reaching this point she was a mass of flames from her waist down. Persons present at once tore the burning garments away and carried her back home. Dr. Hubbell was called, and Drs. Mercer and George came to his assistance. Miss L. was found most severely injured. The skin came off her legs and a portion of her body. Everything was possible done to mitigate her sufferings.

Mr. Landgraff is an employee in the glass factory, and was absent, with his wife, at Dugway, on the Northern road. A telegram was sent and the family were expected last night. Syracuse Standard later report states that the young lady was taken more worse in the morning, and died at nine o'clock. She had a great desire to see her parents, and every effort was made to have them reach the city in time to see her before she died, but they did not arrive until 11 o'clock, when their grief was almost overwhelming. The afflicted family were residents of Cleveland a year or so ago, and have several relatives here at present. The unfortunate young lady is highly spoken of by our people and general sorrow is manifested at this frightful event.
