  • Notes 
    • Sarah Ferguson, who resided on the Fifth Line in Wellesley Township, committed suicide, the Sunday before last. She kept house for her brother David and complained that day of being unwell. Soon after, her body was discovered hanging in the cellar. She was 48 years old. The whole family tends towards melancholy, and one brother and one sister have already done away with themselves.
