Shawano in the news

Shawano County Journal

11 Nov 1876

 

A distressing accident occurred in the town of Maple Grove, in this county, last Sunday night, by which Richard Prickett lost his life. He was hunting after his cows in the woods when he ran against the string to a gun set for deer, and the whole charge of buckshot struck him. The night was very dark and rainy, and he was not found until the next morning. This should be a warning to all not to set guns where there is a possibility of anyone's passing.
