Obituary

Alexander Mason of Milton, who was brought from Ticonderoga to Middlebury a week ago last Sunday and placed in jail to await examination on the charge of having murdered Capt. John Jackson of the schooner James Averill, has been set at liberty.

The body of Jackson was discovered in the lake near Chimney Point on Friday by the pilot of the steamer Vermont. The inquest was held with the results stated in the following death certificate signed by the magistrate who presided:

The body of Captain John Jackson was recovered Friday, Aug 7, at Chimney Point, and an examination was made by Doctors C. B. Warner and A. C. Grover, of Port Henry N. Y.

At the inquest held before me, six witnesses were examined to the man's condition the night he was last seen alive, and the verdict of the jury is that the said Jackson came to his death by drowning from his own carelessness, being at the time intoxicated. The body of Jackson was taken to Burlington, and burial at Lake View cemetery.
