Obituary for John W. Lee


KILLED - June 10, 1871
Mr John W. Lee, a resident of this town was run over by a switch engine, at Hornellsville on Saturday night last week.
He was under the influence of liquor at the time of the accident.  His right arm was nearly cut off near the shoulder, and the body badly cut.
He leaves a wife and three children to mourn his loss.
This should serve as another warning to those who are in the habit of taking a little to much of that ever destroying trash, liquor........
