    • Sheehan: Drowned in a Well

      Mrs. Sheehan came to her end Tuesday night last, about 7 o'clock, by falling into a well, near the corner of Wellington and Catherine Streets. It appeared from the evidence taken before the Coroner, that she was about to remove to another house, and taken to it, during the day, two pigs. She went in the evening for the purpose them some meat, and had occasion to go to the well, for some water. While stooping down to reach the water, it is thought that she lost her hold and went headfirst into the well. Her Husband, who was in the house, which was only a short distance off, wondering where she was stopping so long, and went in search of her, about half an hour after she left, and found her, with little more than her head under water. The well is only about four feet in depth, and contained about a foot of water. There was not the slightest bruise about the head to show that it had been injured as she fell in. It is difficult to understand, how she was unable to extricate herself from the position in which she was found. The jury returned a verdict of accidental death by drowning.1a
