Caroleen, NC Cliffside Pond Drowning, Jun 1907


Edgar Crosby, 11 Years Old, Met Sad End Friday Afternoon.

Special to The Observer.

Caroleen, June 22.---Little Edgar Crosby was accidentally drowned Friday afternoon in the Cliffside pond, Mill No. 2. He was a bright lad, 11 years old, and his mother, being a widow, renders the affair sadder still. Making a mistake while walking along the bank, he fell into water 12 feet deep and before he could be rescued he was drowned.

The remains will be interred in the Providence Cemetery this afternoon.
