Obituary from the Rockland County Journal
Nyack, NY. Saturday, October 1,1859

DROWNED AT HAVERSTRAW
We are pained to record the death by drowning of a little son of Mr. Robert Buchanan of this this village. He attended School all day on Tuesday, but went with another boy after school to Bogert's dock, where it is supposed that in playing he slipped and fell into the water. Some minutes elapsed before the body was recovered, and although life appeared to be extinct when taken from the water, every effort was made to resuscitate him, but in vain. Death is always a solemn and impressive event, but when it occurs so suddenly and unexpectedly it is doubly afflictive.
John Phillips, Esq. Coroner of this town, held an inquest on the body, and the jury rendered a verdict of death by accidented drowning. — Haverstraw Messenger.
