ACCIDENTAL DEATH - A distressingly sad accident occurred last Tuesday, about one mile south of Tiosa, in which George PALMER, the 12 year old son of William PALMER, was killed by his elder brother, Joseph [PALMER]. The two boys, with three others, were hunting rabbits when they discovered a track leading into a large hollow log and Joseph stooped down to look into the log while George came up to the other end and also looked in to see if he could see the rabbit. Joseph saw the rabbit and, not knowing that George was peering in the cavity at the other end, took aim and fired, when George reeled and fell to the ground from the effect of several shot which had penetrated his skull. Some workmen near by heard the shot and shouts of the boys for help and hurried to their assistance and carried George home where he died in about one hour from the time he received his wound. This is a terrible blow to the family and the sympathy of every parent will go out to that father, mother and son in this their hour of awful grief. 1-4-1888 Rochester Sentinel
