Birth: Dec. 25, 1817
Sullivan County
New Hampshire, USA
Death: Feb. 25, 1829
Sullivan County
New Hampshire, USA

Owen, a son of Stephen Hurd, who lived on the S. Howe place, in the South-West part of town, cam to his death in this wise: On the 9th of March, 1829, he and his father ha been out with the neighbors breaking roads, and were returning with a load of wood. While the Father was busy behind, talking with the neighbors, the boy ran forward and jumped upon the sled, and, unnoticed by the father, accidentally slid off in front and the sled ran upon him.

The team soon stopped, and, upon search, the missing boy was found doubled up under the sled, and crushed to death in the most horrible manner.
