  • Notes 
    • ANDERSON, J. T.

      A highly respectable farmer, Mr. J. T. Anderson, came to his death on Friday last, by a calamity as inexplicable as it was sudden. He had been in Galt with a load of firewood and had returned home, where he had again loaded his waggon with wood and had proceeded as far as the house of Mr. Henderson on the Mill Creek, when death appears to have overtaken him with inconceivable suddenness. His body was there found in the snow but so quietly had he fallen, that the snow on either side was entirely undisturbed, presenting an accurate figure of his body. He appeared to have been walking at the side of his waggon and when he fell, the reins getting entangled in the wheels, had drawn the horses towards the fence and there they were till their master's fate was discovered. An inquest was held the same evening before Dr. Seagram, coroner, and a respectable jury, when the above facts were given in evidence and it was also ascertained the no wound or bruise was visible except a trifling scratch and therefore, the cause of death arose from a sudden fit. The jury agreed on the following verdict " that he came to his death accidentally, while driving a span of horses and waggon towards Galt." Mr. Anderson has left a large family to lament his loss.1a
