Dover Point, NH Drowning, Apr 1852
Fatal Accident. We learn that five men belonging to Durham, were drowned near Dover Point, on Saturday night, by the upsetting of a wherry. Their names were ELLIOT G. BURNHAM, JOSEPH P. BURNHAM, (father and son), GEORGE BUNKER, STEPHEN GARLAND AND EDWARD FURNESS. The body of Bunker was found in the boat. The others had not been found. The elder Burnham and Furness have left families; the others were young men unmarried. The party had been to Portsmouth and were on their return. The wind blew strongly at the time, and it is supposed that by some mismanagement the boat was upset.---Dover Enquirer.
