1/5/1871 FATAL ACCIDENT. On Sunday afternoon at about five o'clock our community was startled to hear that Mr. Lonson SHAW had accidently killed himself, in the following very singular manner. He went into the cellar-way to get a piece of ham which was hanging up there, took a knife from his pocket and cut off a slice or two, turned to step up into the room with the knife in his right hand; as he stepped up his foot slipped and he fell partly on his right side through the door, striking his right arm against the door casing, thereby giving the hand holding the knife the right position to fall upon and for it to strike his heart, which caused death almost instantly. The scream of a child near him and his falling, brought his wife and mother to his side, and supposing he was attacked with a fit, after calling his brother, they proceeded to administer what they thought best to bring him to consciousness, not succeeding, an examination was made and a wound over the heart was found. He was 36 years of age. His funeral took place at the Baptist church, on Wednesday, under the direction of the Masonic order, of which he was an honorable member. On Tuesday, Dec. 27th, a man named Moses WRIGHT, living in the town of Pittsfield, some three miles from the this village, was choping wood for Joseph Mumbulo, with a son of the latter. About half-past eleven, young Mumbulo went to the house to do his chores, leaving Wright in the woods. On returning at about one o'clock, he found Wright lying upon the ground dead. From appearances he had cut a tree and in falling it had gone against a smaller one, which was carried partly down by the weight of the falling tree, when it sprung back, striking him on the side of the head, killing him instantly, as appearances indicate. Wright was 26 years of age. He leaves a wife and one child, who have the sympathy of the entire community. - Chronicle. MARRIED In Franklin, on the 26th inst., by the Rev. S. N. Robinson, Mr. M. I.

To a naturally amiable and affectionate disposition, Mrs. Coburn added the crowning grace of human character, an intelligent Christian faith. From childhood she had known the scriptures, and endeavored to walk in their counsel, her whole life was a lucid comment on the reality of the religion she professed. Faith and hope pledged to her heart a reunion with little Charlie, (an only son deceased a few years since), now doubtless with her a glorious reality. An ardent friend and exemplary Christian, a devoted wife, a faithful mother has gone; her record is in Heaven; her memory will live in the hearts of all who knew her. A lonely companion and sorrowing daughter alone remain of the once happy, now broken circle. May it be reunited. (Poem included with notice.) 8/3/1871 MARRIED At Laurens, July 31, by Rev. H. N.

DEATH OF A NOTED WOMAN.- On the 17th ult., Ms. Martha BRADSTREET died at the residence of her son, in Bennettsville. The Ilion Citizen says she was the grandmother of Mrs. R. S. SMITH, Mrs. E. S. PHILLIPS, and Mr. H. M. STERLING, of Ilion. She had resided in Utica, in Schuyler, and only a few years ago in Mohawk. Her name has long been upon the lips of lawyers and suits of hers are now pending in the courts. She was an heir to an immense estate from her uncle, Gen. Bradstreet, who fought in the Revolution. Thirty thousand acres of land in Delaware county, and hundreds in Otsego, Herkimer and Oneida counties were hers-two hundred and fifty in Utica. Of a large amount of her estate she gave deeds of trust to her heirs, but afterwards endeavored to recover her property. Long and persistently she litigated-pleading her own suits in the courts, and evincing marvelous intelligence and self-possession. But she failed in her attempt. And so, since the date of her trust deed, 1808, her land has been more and more populated by others. The status of her estate will now be a new one and her three direct heirs, and several others, indirect, will be contestants for their rights. She was heir also, to a large estate in the city of Dublin, she being Irish and English decent.-Chenango Telegraph. 2/15/1872 MARRIED At the home of the bride, in Laurens, Feb. 4th, by Rev. B. F.
