OBIT/NOTES: Obituary June 11, 1869 "A most distressing and fatal accident occurred in the Village of West Hebron, on Friday evening of last week. Peter Larkin of the firm of Larkin and Getty was out for a ride having in company with him his wife and daughter. As they were approaching the bridge that spans the Black Creek near the center of that village, the horse shied at some object on the souths side of the street, and yielding only his head to the bit, went headway's over the walled embankment on the opposite side which is about ten feet high dragging the wagon and all after him. Mr. Larkin succeeded in jumping from the wagon and escaped unhurt. The daughter although thrown under the wagon was only scratched and bruised. Mrs. Larkin who remained in a partially conscious state was terribly bruised about the face and with her skull fractured, survived until Tuesday morning. Careful examination was made at different times by Drs. Madison, Irving and Allen, and on Monday morning these gentlemen assisted by Dr. Sill of Argyle resorted to trepanning, as the only alternative to save her life, but it was to no avail. A very large concourse of people attended her funeral on Wednesday.  (Posted 4/15/00) Submitted by Linda Kintzing
