Lake County Historical Quarterly, June 1989
Autobiography of Reuben Plum Harmon
"Accordingly they started on their journey in a few days. In crossing the Tuscarawas River, Bassett, the husband of Aunt Anna, my grandfather's oldest daughter, was drowned, his body was found about 4 miles below in the flood wood, was disfigured by the buzzards and somewhat decayed. The body was interred in the cemetery of the village of Coshocton."

The story goes that Samuel Bassett had borrowed a boat and took his family across the river, then he took the boat back across the river to the man he borrowed it from. When swimming back across the river to join his family who was waiting, Samuel drowned.
