THE ADIRONDACK NEW,SATURDAY, April, 7th, 1888

 

 

 

 

Two Indians, Loren Garrow and

his son-in-law, Louis Mitchell, lost

their lives in tho Little Salmon river

at Ft. Covington, Wednesday,

March 21st. They wero out peddling

baskets with n double team

and bob-sled rig and as they attempted

to drive onto the red bridge a

little way south of Ft. Covington

village, the water running across tho

road from the swollen river swept

tho sled box with its occupants away

down the river. Tho night was dark

and though their cries alarmed many,

yet no help was offered them. Next

morning Garrow’s body was found in a

half standing position in about three

feet of Mater in Mathow’s coal shed

on a pier in Salmon river. Mitchell

pershed in the river.—Fanner.
