A Watery Grave

A serious accident occurred last Sunday afternoon in the 13th district near Clarksburg in which one child was lost and an entire family made a narrow escape of being drowned. Just after the rain, JOHN CHAMBERS and family undertook to cross Little Bacon Creek which was considerably swollen. The water floated his wagon, turning the family of father, mother, and three children, into the creek…. The cruel waves carried one child, a boy about nine years old, out of reach of his father and to a watery grave… found less than ½ mile from the accident…
