  • Notes 
    • Linwood - Suicide

      Our village was shocked last Saturday by the news that Mr. Henry Brenner had committed suicide. Coroner Ullyat, of Elmira, was summoned and an inquest held, the jury deciding to the above effect. Deceased had shown symptoms of mental derangement for some weeks and a careful watch was maintained by his friends. However, he happened to escape their vigilance for a few minutes only, and by means of a rope attached to a rack-lifter in the barn, performed the deplorable deed. The family and friends are well thought of and have the deepest sympathy of the community. The funeral took place to-day to St. Clements cemetery.1a
