- STAUFFER - On Friday, the 7th instant, an inquest was held by Dr. Scott, coroner, in the Township of Wilmot, on the body of Nancy Stauffer, aged about two years, the daughter of Eli Stauffer. The little girl had been missing but a short time when her mother went in search of her to the saw-mill about one hundred yards distant. About the same time, Noah Bearings, attending the mill, found it working very slowly and believed some obstruction was keeping off the water. He emptied the race, when the painful spectacle was presented to the mother of the child drawn by the current into the throat of the penstock and thus drowned. The verdict of the jury was in accordance with the above facts.
