From the Manitowoc Pilot, 7 July 1870:
Suicide - A young lady named Ess Griffin, whose parents reside in the town of Cato, this county, called at the drug store of Mr. Robinson, one day last week, and asked for some arsenic. Upon being questioned as to what she wanted it for, she replied that she wanted it for a rat exterminator. The clerk mentioned another kind of exterminator which he said was excellent, but which she thought was not strong enough. Accordingly the poison was put up and gave to the lady and she took her departure.
Sad to relate, it seems she wanted it for no such purpose, but with the full intent of taking her own life, for on Friday her body was found a corpse. A post mortem examination was made and a coroner's inquest held, and a verdict rendered in accordance with the above facts.
