 The Geneseo Republic, Geneseo IL, June 20, 1860
A little daughter, about eight years old, of Mr. Little, livign some three or four miles East of this place, last Thursday, was sent on an errand to a neighbors, but a short distance, and stopping to gather floweres in the edge of the timber, became so confused that she was unable to find her way back home. She wandered all the afternoon, and was seen in different places some miles off, by different persons, but she avoided all houses and it was not known that she was lost. Late in the evening she was found near Green river and was taken home. Quite an excitement was raised and the neighbors all turned out in search of the missing child.
