Shocking Death of Waterford Man
George Williams met a horrible death at his home in Upper Waterford early Tuesday, March 7. The house was discovered in flames at 4 o'clock and an hour later, when the fire had been extinguished, the dead body of Williams with both legs burned off, was found lying across a bed. A mysterious feature of the case is the fact that the upper portion of William's body was scarcely affected by the fire, and he was in a room where the blaze had done little damage. Williams owned the farm on which he resided and lived alone. He was 66 years of age and was a veteran of the civil war.
