I have done a bit more research on Cyrus' death and he drowned at the powder mill site while trying to draw water off from the dam they had. He was one of the original brothers and was age 33 at the time of his death. He was pulled into the current, had his leg/foot caught and the swift current held him down before they could rescue him. This was reported in the Beacon Journal on July 9th, 1842. It is possible he is our company's first fatality. Too bad as his reputation was solid as a businessman and neighbor.

The dam where he drowned at was at Old Forge.
