Pioneer life resulted in several fatal accidents. For instance, William Dayton was killed as he and George W. Bean were giving a demonstration of the cannon. One shot had been fired, and a spark ignited the powder during reloading. Dayton was killed and Mr. Bean lost his left arm. "Hout" Conover rode 120 miles in twenty hours to Centerville for Dr. Blake. This was a feat of riding history.
