Ludlow, VT Drowning, Mar 1847

March 24, 1847, Hannah, a little daughter of Pat Lanahan, about four and a half years of age, was drowned in the pen-stock that carried the water to the old grist-mill. It was a fulling-mill at that time. The child was playing with other children on the bulk-head which was above where the high, rail-road bridge now is, and fell into the flume back of the iron grating that stopped the drift-wood, and was drawn into the pen-stock. Joel Warner recovered the lifeless body at the mill.
