==============
Madison Weekly Herald

A floater was found in the river near Cosby's mill, late yesterday, and towed to John's wharf. Coroner McCoy held an inquest, and from a mail line deck ticket dated August 6th, believes him to be John or Jacob Silver. He is thought to be a painter as he had some graining tools and a putty knife in his pocket. The deceased was about 25 years of age. He was 5 feet 8 inches high and was dressed in gray cotton pants and vest; wore no coat. Had on low buttoned shoes. There were no markers to show the cause of his death. The body was buried at Springdale cemetery today.
