Ontario County Journal (Canandaigua, New York)
Friday, 21 September 1888

Canadice, N. Y. - The residence of Mrs. Charlotte Adams and her mother, a lady over 80 years old, was entered by burglars last Tuesday morning about 2 o'clock. Mrs. Jackman was aroused by a hand laid softly on the bed and thinking it was her daughter, who sleeps in an adjoining room, she asked her what was wanted. Mrs. Adams was awakened by her mother's voice and started to raise up when she was seized by the throat and pushed back, the man muttering something at the same time. Mrs. Adams screamed at the top of her voice for help when the man took leave in a great hurry passing out to the kitchen and thence through the wood house through the doorway he had entered by means of a hole through which he could unlock the door. Mrs. Adams as soon as she could strike a light and fasten the house, raised a window and rung a bell which awakened M. J. Becker living opposite who quickly got there and aroused the whole neighborhood, but the would-be burglar had fled and only a stick of wood on the bureau gave evidence that the house had been entered. A bit-stock from Job Francisco's shop was found near the gate, and the man tracked nearly a mile. From the disturbance in both rooms it would seem there were two, but only one track was found. Mrs. Adams was relieved of her revolver some time ago and had not replaced it, but the next man that goes there in the night will resemble a lead mine before he leaves.
