Sonny's obituary and several photos have been added to his memorial. I witnessed the tragic accident on January 31, 1945 that would take Sonny’s life 4 months later. Sonny was wearing a Gene Autry cowboy outfit with plush white chaps. While playing near a trash fire the chaps caught fire. Sonny suffered 3rd degree burns from the waist down. There were many children during that period that would suffer a similar fate. Below is an excerpt from: http://legalhist.jotwell.com/bodies-on-the-line-the-private-tragedies-underlying-modern-products-liability-law/ by | Karen Tani September 12th, 2014
The Cowboy Suit Tragedy centers on the New York case McCormack v. M. A. Henry Co., a wrongful death suit brought by the McCormack family against the manufacturers of the Gene Autry cowboy suit. A popular toy since it first came off the production line in 1942, the “Autry cowboy ranch outfit” offered parents a way to “provide their children with a protected childhood,” an intense postwar desire, while participating in the mass consumer economy that increasingly defined American identity. (P. 103.) Unfortunately for seven-year-old Tommy McCormack, who received the toy for Christmas in 1944, there was a hazard “designed in” to the costume: its plush white chaps were made from a highly flammable viscose rayon fiber, at a time when “children encountered fire as a regular part of daily life.”3 “One minute Tommy was playing,” Welke writes, drawing from court testimony, “and the next he was screaming,” in what his brother Jackie remembered as “a ‘circle of fire.’” After four long months, he died from his injuries. (P. 101.) Other children had by then suffered similar fates, but after Mr. McCormack’s chance encounter with a lawyer, Tommy became the cowboy suit’s first legally cognizable victim. (P. 111.)
These tragedies would culminate in the adoption of the U. S. Flammable Fabrics Act in 1953.

FYI just uploaded photo of subj tombstone & his wife.
Please contact St Thomas church to get the marker location in St Sthomas. It must be a flat marker and they are covered over with grass as they mow over them. If I have the location we can clear it and photograph it.
