Obituary

FATALITY - Thursday morning of last week the body of Henry Campbell, son of Hazen Campbell of Washington, was found lying under his wagon in "the branch," just above the bridge near Waterman's factory, at the North end of Chelsea village. He was last seen driving through Chelsea street about 8 o'clock the evening before, and it would seem that in going home he drove over the bank and into the stream, instead of on the bridge. The accident is a strange one, the night having been a light one, and the water in the stream but about three feet deep. The wagon must have upset as it went over the bank, which was about five feet high, and he been stunned by striking on the stones abounding on the bottom of 'the branch.' The body was discovered by Dr. Albert Dodge, as he was returning from a visit to a patient. The Doctor passed over the bridge about 11 o'clock the night before, and saw nothing; and two others passed over it during the night. Campbell was about 22 years of age, and was to have been married this month. The horse he was driving was not much hurt, but was badly chilled. It was blind in one eye, and reported to be ugly.
