  • Notes 
    • MELANCHOLY Accident - The Delaware Gazette contains the following account of a melancholy accident which occurred in the town of Hobart, Delaware county:
      On Wednesday afternoon, the 11th inst., William Puffer, son of widow Puffer, aged about 24 years, left the house for the purpose of starting a wheel rigged for sawing wood, about 25 rods from the house, and while in the act of loosening the wheel, (it being on the upper side), he slipped into the inside of the wheel, leaving his head and right arm out; his weight turning it, brought the arm of the wheel across his neck, wedging him in so tight between the arm of the wheel end toe wall, which was covered with ice, that it was impossible for him to extricate himself, and in that condition perished from the water trickling over him and freezing. He left the house about 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and was not found unlit the next morning about daylight.
