Sad Accident

Calvin Taylor, the ten year old son of Mr. W B Taylor, fell off of the boat We Three last Friday afternoon about 2 o’clock and was drowned. His remains were brought to Hartford and taken to Capt. Wm. Foreman’s residence where they were kept until Saturday at 2 o’clock p. m., when interment took place in Oakwood cemetery.

The accident occurred while the boat was making the bend Just below the mouth of Muddy creek about two miles West of Hartford. The boy was standing on the deck near the kitchen and when last seen was sliding over the guard of the boat into the river. The alarm was given and the boat stopped as quickly as possible, but while every possible effort was made to rescue him he drowned before aid could reach him. His remains were recovered in about five minutes after he sank. All known means were resorted to restore him to life but to no avail. His father, Mr. Taylor, has the Herald’s profoundest sympathy in this his sad bereavement.
