Greene, ME Killed by Rocks, Jul 1828

"At an hour when ye think not"----A young unmarried lady by the name of Sampson was buried in Greene July 10th, whose death was caused as follows. Miss Sampson in company with another female, as we are informed, had retired a distance from their dwelling to escape danger from the blasting of rocks near the house. As they were seated, apparently in a safe retreat, a fragment of the blasted rock weighing about 12 oz. descended from a considerable height, fractured her skull and caused her death in twelve days. Miss S. was formerly of ________ in Massachusetts. Her age was about 37.-----[Brunswick Herald.]
